International Middle East Media Center: Three Palestinian men were injured and others suffered from excessive tear gas inhalation, during clashes with Israeli forces east of Gaza City, on Tuesday, said an official.

Gaza Health Ministry Spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra said that three people in Nahal Oz were injured, one of whom was a journalist.

The three were taken to the hospital with moderate injuries, al-Qidra said.


The clashes broke out after dozens of people from the Intifada Youth Coalition rallied to demonstrate, on the anniversary of the Ibrahimi Mosque massacre.


An Israeli army spokeswoman did not immediately return calls seeking comment.


On Feb. 25, 1994, an American-born Israeli entered Hebron’s Ibrahimi Mosque and opened fire, killing 29 worshipers and injuring 125.
