At 17:00 on Friday, 8 September 2017, Israeli occupation forces based to the east of the separation fence tear-gassed and opened fire at tens of children and young adults who were protesting near the fence around the Shuhada cemetery in North Gaza. Different Palestinian factions called for a protest to show solidarity with Palestinians in Jerusalem. Three people were injured. Al Mezan identified their names as follow: Talal Nabil Abu Namous, 15, injured by firearm shooting in his right hand; Thaer Mohammed Rabiaa, 29, injured by rubber bullets in both of his legs, and Diaa Ahmed Al-Natour, 21, injured by a tear-gas bomb in his back. The three of them were taken to the Indonesia  Hospital, where medical staff assessed their injuries to be from light to moderate. Others who suffered from inhaling tear-gas were also received medical help. IOF continued shooting at protesters until the evening of the same day.
