Palestinians injured as Israel suppresses 27th 'Great March of Return'

Sept. 28, 2018 5:20 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 29, 2018 10:42 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- At least 35 Palestinians were injured by Israeli forces during protests at the eastern borders of the besieged Gaza Strip, on Friday.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza reported that a total of 35 Palestinians were injured until 5:00 p.m. Friday; 20 of whom were transferred to hospitals for treatment including 15 injured with live ammunition.

The Israeli army opened fired ammunition and tear-gas bombs at protests near the return camps of eastern Khan Younis, in the southern Gaza Strip, injuring several protesters including an 11-year-old boy.

Medical sources identified the injured boy as Youssef Abu Tharifeh, reporting his injury as critical.

A Ma'an reporter said that thousands of Palestinians headed to return camps alongside the eastern borders of Gaza on the 27th Friday of "The Great March of Return."

Additional Israeli forces were deployed on the borders as protesters launched several incendiary kites and balloons.

"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.
