Gaza postpones 51st 'Great March of Return' protest

March 15, 2019 2:58 P.M. (Updated: March 17, 2019 12:26 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The National Committee for Breaking the Siege decided to exceptionally suspend “The Great March of Return” on its 51st Friday alongside the eastern border fence of the besieged Gaza Strip.

The committee said in a short statement that protests for the 51st Friday were postponed in order to save the lives of protesters amid Israeli escalation against the Gaza Strip, and in preparation for Land Day protests on March 30th, as it would mark one year of “The Great March of Return” protests.

This is the first time the committee suspends “The Great March of Return” protests since its beginning on March 30th, 2018.

Four Palestinians were injured, on predawn Friday, as Israeli warplanes carried out airstrikes targeting several sites across the besieged Gaza Strip hours after missiles were reportedly fired from Gaza, on predawn Friday.
