At the Erez crossing in Gaza, Israeli tanks have fired shells at the peaceful demonstrators, injuring several people, including 15 children. There are unconfirmed reports of 2 men killed, one of whom is 17. F16 fighter jets have also been roaming the skies, accompanied by unmaned drones.
At the Rafah crossing, thousands of Palestinians have marched to the border with Egypt. Thousands of Egyptians trying to make their way to the border have been stopped by the Egyptian Army.
In the occupied West Bank, Israel have imposed a 24 hour lock down. Thousands of IOF troops are imposing the lock down, and many Palestinians have also been injured there. Many have been hit with live fire and tear gas cannisters.
