Bulk7GAZA (PNIC):-Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza Strip said that 29 Palestinians were killed since thousands of Palestinians in Gaza launched the “Great March of Return” on March 30.

Spokesman for the Ministry, Asharaf Qudra, reported that 2850 others were injured as Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) continue violent suppression of the peaceful protest along Gaza borders.

At least 1,296 have been injured with live ammunition, 79 of them are in critical condition, he added.

According to the source, the data did not include the two young men who were shot dead near the border fence as their bodies are still held by Israeli authorities.

Friday’s protests marked one week since the beginning of the "Great March of Return," a weeks-long protests in which almost 1.3 million of Gaza’s 2 million inhabitants who are refugees are demanding their right to return to their original homelands.

The six-week protest is set to end on May 15th, the 70th anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba, or “catastrophe,” when the state of Israel was created, leaving some 750,000 Palestinians and millions of their descendants as refugees.
