Bulk 232GAZA (PNIC):-A Palestinian was killed while over 1,000 were injured after being shot by the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) near Gaza's eastern border on the seventh Friday of the Great March of Return.

Gaza's Ministry of Health said that the Palestinian citizen Jaber Abu Mustafa, 40, died after being shot in the chest east of Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip.

Spokesman for the Ministry Ashraf al-Qedra said that 34 medics were injured and four ambulances were partially destroyed after being targeted by the IOF gunfire during the protests.

The Ministry of Health said in a statement that the IOF snipers deliberately targeted journalists and children on the seventh Friday of the Great March of Return.

The PNIC reporter said that several dunums of settler farmlands behind the border fence were burned by flaming kites launched by Palestinian youths taking part in the marches.

According to the PNIC reporter, preparations are underway by the Higher National Committee for the March of Return and Breaking the Siege to install new tents near the border fence ahead of the massive demonstrations expected next week to mark the 70th anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba.

Member of the Committee Ismail Ridwan told Quds Press that the protests will continue until they achieve their goals.

The Palestinians in the Gaza Strip on 30th March launched a peaceful protest movement called the Great March of Return to demand their right of return and pressure Israel to lift the blockade imposed on them for over a decade now. The protests are expected to reach their peak on 15th May.

So far 53 peaceful protesters have been killed, six of whom are being detained by the IOF, and over 8,000 injured.
