Egyptian forces Wednesday inflicted gunshot wounds on at least two Palestinians during protests against Cairo's steeling its border with the blockaded Gaza Strip.
The incident occurred when security forces confronted the protesters on the Egypt-Gaza border, Reuters reported.
The Egyptian government is building a steel wall along the border to prevent the trafficking of any goods to the strip.
The coastal sliver continues to suffer from an all-out Israeli-imposed blockade which has deprived it of its basic necessities for over two years.
On Wednesday, Egyptian riot police injured 55 people during clashes with Gaza-bound human rights activists.
