Injuries reported during Gaza's 'Great March of Return'

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- At least twelve Palestinians were shot and injured by Israeli forces during Friday protests in the besieged Gaza Strip.

A Ma'an reporter said that a Palestinian youth was targeted and shot at by Israeli forces.

Sources confirmed that the Palestinian youth was shot and injured in his chest and leg during the Friday protests east of Khan Younis district, in southern Gaza, while another was shot and injured in eastern Gaza City.

The youth's identity, as well as his medical condition remained unknown.

Palestinian demonstrators began arriving near the return camps along the eastern border of Gaza to participate in "The Great March of Return" protests which began on March 30th.

The protests set off under the slogan "We are returning, despite Trump's decision."

Sources said that Israeli forces fired live ammunition and tear-gas bombs at Palestinians peacefully participating in the protests, in attempt to disperse them.

"The Great March of Return" protests were launched on March 30th by thousands of Palestinian civilians in Gaza -- which has suffered from a decade-long Israeli siege -- who took to the borders to demand their right of return as refugees to their original homelands, now in present-day Israel.
