Dozens of Palestinians were injured on Friday when the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) heavily opened fire at the peaceful protesters taking part in the Great March of Return for the 32nd week in a row.
The PIC reporter said, quoting Gaza Ministry of Health, that 32 Palestinians were injured by live ammunition and teargas canisters.
The PIC reporter said that the Egyptian security delegation visiting the Gaza Strip were present in the Great March of Return camps along with Palestinian faction leaders and members of the Higher National Committee for the Great March of Return and Breaking the Siege.
The Higher National Committee for the Great March of Return and Breaking the Siege in a statement on Thursday called for the largest popular participation in Friday’s protests on the anniversary of the Balfour Declaration.
The Committee affirmed that the Great March of Return will continue until it achieves its goals, and praised Egypt’s role in supporting the Palestinian people’s struggle against the siege and occupation.
The Egyptian delegation arrived on Thursday in the Gaza Strip to discuss the reconciliation and the ceasefire agreement with Israel.
Palestinians in the Gaza Strip since 30 March have been protesting on a daily basis along the eastern border to draw the world’s attention to the Palestinian refugees’ right of return and the worsening humanitarian situation in the enclave due to the decade-long blockade.
Since the start of the border protests, 228 Palestinians have been killed by the IOF and over 22,000 injured, 460 of whom are in critical condition.
