GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hundreds of Palestinians of the besieged Gaza Strip marched, on Saturday, in the funeral processions of three Palestinians killed during the 20th Friday of "The Great March of Return."

Paramedic Abdullah Qatati, 22, and Ali al-Alul, 55, were killed by Israeli live ammunition during Friday protests at the eastern borders of the Gaza Strip, while Ahmad Abu Luli, 40, succumbed on Saturday morning to wounds he sustained on Friday.

The funeral processions set off from the Abu Youssef Najjar Hospital in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip.

In addition to the three killed Palestinians, some 307 injuries were reported on Friday by the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza as thousands of Palestinians arrived to the eastern borders of the Gaza Strip to participate in the 20th "Great March of Return" under the slogan of "Friday of Freedom and Life," calling for the end of the nearly 12-year Israeli siege of Gaza and for their right of return as refugees to their original homelands, now in present-day Israel.
