The type of injuries that reached hospitals in Gaza Strip showed that the Israeli snipers were purposefully shooting to maim and kill Palestinians protesters in Great March of Return and breaking the siege.

The Israeli occupation forces used lethal force against civilians in the eastern Gaza Strip that led to the martyrdom of  271 Palestinians and injuring 16,500 by live ammunition.

IOF used uncoded gas canisters which led to health implications to the injured.

IOF used metal and tear gas bombs as a tool for maiming and killing protesters which caused the death of 6 citizens, including 4 children and injuring dozens of various distortions.

We call upon the concerned institutions to monitor the violations of the Israeli occupation and its use of lethal Internationally prohibited weapons.
