GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Two Palestinian minors were killed by Israeli forces, while 17 others suffered injuries, on Friday, during “The Great March of Return” protests along the eastern Gaza border.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza confirmed that Hassan Iyad Shalbi, 13, and Hamza Muhammad Rashdi Ishteiwi, 17, were shot and killed by Israeli forces, while 17 others suffered various injuries.

The ministry pointed out that Shalbi was shot in the chest, while Ishteiwi was shot in his neck.

Israeli forces fired live ammunition and tear-gas bombs towards Palestinian protesters and Israeli military vehicles repeatedly opened fire east of Khan Younis, south of the besieged Gaza Strip.

Additionally, Israeli forces sprayed sewage water at the protesters to disperse them and targeted a vehicle belonging to the Palestinian Civil Defense with tear-gas bombs.

"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.
