JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli army said that its forces dismantled explosive devices and home-made bombs along the besieged Gaza Strip border, which were thrown by Palestinians during Friday protests towards Israel.

According to Hebrew-language news outlets, more than 100 explosive devices and home-made bombs were thrown, on Friday, during the weekly protests known as “The Great March of Return,” in which 20,000 Palestinians participated.

Sources added that the Israeli army dismantled the devices and bombs safely on Sunday.

During the Friday protests, Israeli forces shot and killed seven Palestinians, including two children who were aged 12 and 14 years old, across the eastern borders of Gaza.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza confirmed that about 500 Palestinians were injured, of whom nine were injured due live ammunition fired by Israeli forces.

"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.
