GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Three Palestinians were killed and dozens others sustained injuries during the 25th Friday of "The Great March of Return" protests alongside the eastern borders of the besieged Gaza Strip.

Hundreds of Palestinians had gathered, earlier Friday, alongside the eastern borders of the Gaza Strip to take part in protests under the slogan of "Resistance is our Choice."

Spokesperson of the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza, Ashraf al-Qidra, confirmed that three Palestinians were killed during protests.

Al-Qidra identified them as Muhammad Shaqqoura, 21, who was injured with a live bullet in the chest in eastern al-Breij in the central Gaza Strip, 12-year-old Shadi Abed al-Aziz Abed al-Aal, who was injured in eastern Jabaliya in the northern Gaza Strip and Hani Ramzi Affaneh, 30, from Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip.

The ministry added that at least 30 Palestinians were injured with, 20 of them were transferred to hospitals for treatment including 11 with live bullets.

Two violations against medical teams were reported; one woman paramedic was injured.

A journalist identified as Ismail al-Ghoul was also injured with a live bullet in the leg in eastern Gaza City.

"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.
