Bulk 236GAZA (PNIC):-Dozens of Palestinians were injured on Friday by Israeli gunfire and teargas canisters while taking part in the Great March of Return along Gaza's border with the 1948 occupied Palestinian territories.

Gaza's Ministry of Health said that about 1,143 Palestinians were injured including 36 children and 11 women.

Thousands of Palestinian citizens started since the morning hours to march in the five Return camps erected along Gaza's eastern border for the sixth week in a row.

The PNIC reporter said that Palestinian protesters east of Rafah city in the southern Gaza Strip managed to knock an Israeli drone sent to document the protests to the ground in the afternoon. Another drone was brought down earlier in Khan Younis.

The Higher National Committee of the Great March of Return decided to name the sixth Friday of the March as the "Friday of Palestinian Workers" to express appreciation for these members of  society who have a significant role in the Palestinian national struggle against the occupation.

The PNIC reporters said that Palestinian youths set dozens of tires on fire along the border fence to block the view of Israeli snipers.

Since the launch of the peaceful Great March of Return, 50 Palestinians have been killed and over 7,000 injured as a result of Israel's excessive use of lethal force against unarmed protesters.
