GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza published statistics, on Wednesday, regarding attacks by Israeli forces against Palestinian protesters during “The Great March of Return” along the eastern borders of the besieged Gaza Strip, between March 30th 2018 and May 14th 2019.

The ministry said that 305 Palestinians, including 59 children, 10 women, and one elderly, were killed by Israeli forces, while 17,335 others suffered various injuries.

The ministry confirmed that among the injured were 3,565 children, 1,168 women, and 104 elderly.

The ministry said that 564 Palestinians were critically injured, while 7,345 were moderately injured and 9,426 suffered minor injuries with either live ammunition or rubber-coated steel bullets.

Of the 17,335 Palestinians injured, about 1,685 suffered injuries to the head and neck, in addition to 122 to the lower limbs and 14 in the upper limbs.

The ministry also confirmed that three Palestinian paramedics were killed and 680 medical crew members were injured.

"The Great March of Return" protests were launched on March 30th by thousands of Palestinian civilians in Gaza -- which has suffered from a 12-year-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.
