GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- At least 130 Palestinians were injured with live Israeli ammunition, tear-gas suffocation and in airstrikes during protests along the eastern borders of the besieged Gaza Strip under "The Great March of Return," on Friday.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza confirmed that 130 Palestinians were injured during protests, including two critical injuries; one of whom is a 70-year-old woman.

The ministry added that a Palestinian journalist was among those injured.

A Ma'an reporter that Israeli forces heavily and randomly opened fire at protesters as several of them were able to cut through the Israeli security fence at the borders of the northern Gaza Strip.

Several protesters were also able to cross into the security fence at the eastern borders of Gaza City.

Three Palestinians were injured during airstrikes carried out by Israeli drones in eastern Khan Younis.

Since the beginning of "The Great March of Return" on March 30th, thousands of Palestinian civilians in Gaza -- which has suffered from a decade-long Israeli siege -- have been protesting at the eastern borders of the besieged enclave to demand their right of return as refugees to their original homelands, now in present-day Israel
