Israeli forces suppress weekly Gaza protests, injure 83 Palestinians

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- At least 83 Palestinians were shot and injured by Israeli live fire, including one critical injury, on the 53rd Friday of the weekly protests across the besieged Gaza Strip, on Friday evening.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza confirmed that 83 Palestinians with various injuries arrived to the hospitals of the Gaza Strip as Israeli forces suppressed protesters at the eastern borders the Gaza Strip.

Israeli forces surrounded several Palestinian youths in eastern Gaza City and targeted them with "red gas" and live fire.

Palestinian crowds had gathered alongside the eastern borders of the Gaza Strip to take part in the weekly march to break the ongoing Israeli siege.

"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.
