Days Of Palestine – Gaza

Dozens of Palestinian citizens were injured on Friday when Israeli occupation forces heavily opened fire at the peaceful demonstrators taking part in the Great March of Return near Gaza border.

The Ministry of Health said that 49 Palestinians were injured by live ammunition, rubber-coated metal bullets and tear gas bombs, including 22 children, on the 78th Friday of the Great March of Return.

The Gaza Strip Palestinians on 30 March 2018 launched peaceful demonstrations in five camps along the borderline between the enclave and the 1948 occupied Palestinian territories to demand the right to return for refugees and call for lifting the 13-year-long siege on Gaza.

Since the start of the border protests, the Israeli occupation forces have killed 334 Palestinians and injured over 32,000. Israel is still holding the bodies of 16 Palestinians who were killed in the marches.
