GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Injuries were reported among Palestinians protesting at the eastern borders of the besieged Gaza Strip, on Friday afternoon.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza confirmed that at least 37 Palestinians were injured with Israeli live ammunition, including six children, nine women and one paramedic woman.

Medical sources told Ma'an that the paramedic, Filastin Qudeih, whose first name means Palestine, was injured with a live bullet in her leg.

Spokesperson of the MOH in Gaza, Ashraf al-Qidra, said that medical crews at the European Hospital in Gaza City were treating a Palestinian, who had arrived to the hospital, with a critical neck injury.

Palestinian crowds had arrived across the eastern borders of the Gaza Strip; tires were set on fire across several areas.

Israeli forces fired live ammunition and tear-gas bombs to suppress protesters.

According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza, 220 Palestinians have been killed since the beginning of "The Great March of Return" on March 30th, while more than 24,000 others have been injured.

"The Great March of Return" protests were launched on 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.
