GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- At least 17 Palestinians were injured by Israeli forces, on Friday afternoon, during weekly protests in the besieged Gaza Strip.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza confirmed that nine Palestinians sustained moderate injuries with live bullets, in addition to two paramedics and a journalist who were directly hit with tear-gas canisters by Israeli forces, while others suffered tear-gas inhalation.
Israeli forces opened fire towards several Palestinian protesters who gathered at the eastern border fence of Khuzaa town in the southern Gaza Strip, while tear-gas canisters were fired at others gathering in eastern Gaza City.
A Ma'an reporter said that Israeli snipers were deployed alongside the eastern border fence.
"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.
