Palestinians clashed with Israel Defence Forces (IDF) near the Bureij refugee camp in Gaza, Wednesday. The protesters reportedly breaking through a gate into an Israeli-controlled zone and throwing rocks. The IDF responded by firing tear gas at the Palestinians in attempts to push them back. Tensions continue to mount in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories with ongoing violence and reprisals, initially stemming from weeks of clashes over the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in east Jerusalem, as well as the construction of illegal Jewish settlements in the West Bank. According to the Palestinian Health Ministry, Monday, 25 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli security forces since October 3, with more than 1,300 left injured.
