GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Two Palestinian were killed and at least 55 others were injured, while dozens of others suffered from tear-gas inhalation, as Israeli forces suppressed protesters along the eastern borders of the besieged Gaza Strip, on Friday.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza confirmed that one Palestinian was shot and killed by Israeli forces in eastern al-Breij refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip, while another was also shot and killed in eastern Gaza City.

Spokesperson of the ministry in Gaza, Ashraf al-Qidra, confirmed that at least 55 Palestinians were shot and injured with Israeli live fire, while dozens of others suffered from tear-gas inhalation, including a number of health workers.

The ministry added that three violations against medical teams were recorded as two paramedics were injured and an ambulance was directly targeted by Israeli as Israeli forces targeted and opened fire towards medical trauma stabilization points and ambulances, east of al-Breij refugee camp, in central Gaza, and east of Khan Younis, in southern Gaza.

Israeli forces fired live ammunition, rubber-coated steel bullets, and tear-gas bombs during the protest.

Thousands of Palestinians gathered alongside the eastern borders of Gaza to participate in the 51st Great March of Return protests in attempt 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.
