Gaza,(Alresalah.ps)--Three Palestinians were killed and dozens others injured on Friday when the Israeli occupation forces violently quelled the Great March of Return on Gaza border.
The PIC reporter said, quoting Gaza Ministry of Health, that Mohammed al-Jahjouh, 16, Maher Yasin, a 40-year-old disabled man, and Abdulaziz Abu Shari'a, 28, died of live bullet wounds.
At least 40 Palestinians were injured by Israeli gunfire and teargas canisters, including two journalists and four paramedics, he added.
Hundreds of Palestinians marched on the 39th Friday of the Great March of Return along the border fence between the Gaza Strip and the 1948 occupied Palestinian territories.
The Higher National Committee for the Great March of Return and Breaking the Siege earlier in the week called on the Palestinians in Gaza to take part in Friday's protests and show solidarity with the Palestinian people in the West Bank.
The committee released a statement praising the latest anti-occupation operations and the sacrifices made by the West Bank Palestinians, and calling for escalating all forms of resistance against the occupation.
The committee stressed that the Great March of Return will maintain its popular and peaceful character and will continue until its main objectives are achieved, particularly breaking the 13-year-long Gaza blockade.
Since the start of Gaza border protests on 30 March, the Israeli occupation forces have killed 239 Palestinians, including 44 children and 5 women, and injured 25,700.
