GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Palestinians of the besieged Gaza Strip marched, on Saturday, in the funeral of three Palestinians who were killed by Israeli live ammunition during Friday protests alongside the eastern borders.

Three funeral processions set off across different parts of the Gaza Strip, during which mourners carried the bodies of those killed on their shoulders from hospitals towards their family homes for final farewells before prayers at their hometowns' local mosques and burial afterwards.

Mourners called slogans demanding "revenge."

In the al-Shujaiyyeh neighborhood of Gaza City, an atmosphere of sadness and shock took over the family home of 12-year-old Fares al-Sarsawi, one of the three killed, as his family members and loved ones said their final goodbyes.

Meanwhile, the funeral of Hussein Fathi al-Ruqab, 28, set off from the Nasser Medical Center in Khan Younis, in the southern Gaza Strip.

In the al-Nuseirat refugee camp, Palestinians marched in the funeral of Akram Abu Siman, 22.

According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza, al-Sarsawi, al-Ruqab and Abu Siman's death brings the death toll since the beginning of "The Great March of Return" to 198 killed Palestinians, while some 21600 others were injured.

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
