On Wednesday, a number of Palestinian demonstrators were wounded by Israeli army bullets near the border fence east of Khan Yunis, in the southern Gaza Strip, while Tel Aviv spoke of "close military action" there.

Ambulance crews transported a number of demonstrators who were injured by live bullets and suffocated by tear gas canisters, during the popular march called by the National and Islamic Action Factions Committee.

The Ministry of Health in Gaza did not release an official statistic of the number of injuries during the march, until 15:20 GMT.

Thousands of Palestinians participated in the popular festival, "The Sword of Jerusalem will not be sheathed", which was called on Monday by the National and Islamic Action Factions Committee (which includes the majority of Palestinian factions), to participate in it, and in a march near the border fence with Israel, east of the border town of Khuza'a, in the southern Gaza Strip. .

The Israeli army suppressed the demonstrators near the border fence, by firing a heavy barrage of tear gas canisters from drones, and live bullets from time to time, according to eyewitnesses.

Since noon, the Israeli army has deployed dozens of soldiers, vehicles and military vehicles along the separation fence east of Khan Yunis, to confront the festival and the popular march.

This festival comes as part of "popular activities in rejection of the Israeli siege and procrastination in the file of the reconstruction of Gaza, and the humane extortion of the population," according to a source in the same committee.

The "Sword of Jerusalem" is a name given by the Palestinian armed factions in the Gaza Strip to their response to the recent Israeli aggression on the Strip, which erupted on May 10 and lasted 11 days.

military action

Meanwhile, Israeli Chief of Staff Aviv Kohavi said that the army was preparing for a military operation in the Gaza Strip "maybe soon."

This came in statements Kohavi made, Wednesday, to military correspondents, according to the official "Kan" channel.

He added: "We are preparing for another operation in Gaza, perhaps in the near time frame (...) and we do not accept and will not accept the violation of Israel's sovereignty, whoever is behind it."

He explained that the defense establishment received an increase in the budget of 1.5 billion shekels (about 460 million dollars) in 2021, and one billion shekels (about 310 million dollars) in 2022.

The recent aggression resulted in the death of 260 Palestinians and the wounding of thousands, while the resistance factions responded by firing hundreds of missiles at Israeli cities and gatherings, resulting in the killing of 13 people and wounding hundreds.
