GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Several Palestinians, including a journalist were injured by Israeli live ammunition at the eastern borders of the besieged Gaza Strip, on Friday.

Palestinian crowds gathered at return camps set up at five different points across the eastern borders of the Gaza Strip on the 28th Friday of "The Great March of Return."

Protesters set fire to tires, while Israeli forces opened live fire and tear-gas bombs.

Israeli artillery was also deployed at the eastern borders of the Khuzaa town in the southern Gaza Strip.

The Israeli army had also declared the eastern borders of the Gaza Strip a closed military zone, earlier Friday, as it had also deployed reinforcement to the borders a day earlier.

The National Committee for Breaking the Siege had called for this Friday's marches under the slogan "Friday of Steadiness and Resilience."

According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, 195 Palestinians have been killed and 21600 injured since the beginning of protests on March 30th.

Since the beginning of "The Great March of Return" on March 30th, thousands of Palestinian civilians in Gaza -- which has suffered from a decade-long Israeli siege -- have been protesting at the eastern borders of the besieged enclave to demand their right of return as refugees to their original homelands, now in present-day Israel
