Injuries as Israel suppresses 26th March of Return

Sept. 21, 2018 5:27 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 22, 2018 11:05 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- At least four Palestinians were injured, on Friday afternoon, during the weekly protests at the eastern borders of the besieged Gaza Strip.

Thousands of Palestinians marched towards the eastern borders of Gaza on the 26th Friday of "The Great March of Return."

Palestinian youths set tires on fire alongside the borders as Israeli forces deployed on the other side opened live ammunition and tear-gas bombs towards protesters.

A Ma'an reporter said that Israeli forces directly targeted journalists and ambulances with tear-gas bombs in eastern Gaza City.

Israeli forces also opened fire at youths gathering in eastern al-Breij refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip as they attempted to cut off parts of the Israeli security fence.

In eastern Jabaliya in the northern Gaza Strip, Israeli forces heavily fired tear-gas bombs at protesters.

"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.
