GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Three Palestinian men were injured and others suffered from excessive tear gas inhalation during clashes with Israeli forces east of Gaza City on Tuesday, an official said.

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.

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 said that forces fired at Palestinians who approached a security fence despite instructions from Israeli forces to turn back. She said they identified direct hits.

On Feb. 25, 1994, a Jewish extremist entered Hebron's Ibrahimi Mosque and opened fire, killing 29 worshipers and injuring 125.

I saw the headline and thought at first that this story was about the massacres of Fatah soldiers by Hamas soldiers that started in February of 2007.
