Two Palestinians were martyred and dozens were injured by the Israeli gunfire at the protestors who flocked into Gaza border after Friday prayers to challenge the Zionist occupation and blockade.
The 44th event of the weekly Great Marches of Return was this Friday under the banner: “The Blockade Crime: Conspiracy Won’t Pass”.
The National Committee of the Return Marches had called for wide participation in the weekly protests in face of the oppressive blockade.
Earlier on Thursday, Israeli media reported that the occupation army had deployed Iron Dome missile defense system near the border with Gaza, in preparations made ahead of Friday protests.
In the occupied West Bank, the Palestinians also protested against the Zionist settler policy which poses a serious threat to their lands and national rights.
