At least 20 Palestinians injured by Israel shots in the 47th week of 'Great March of Return' protest in Gaza border.

Iran Press/Middle East:  At least 20 Palestinians, including a child, injured by live bullets on Friday as Israeli forces attacked hundreds of protesters at Gaza-Israel border, according to the Ministry of Health.

Thousands of Gazan gathered in eastern part of enclave's border with occupied lands for the 43rd consecutive week, calling for their rights, rights that world for decades turned their blind eyes on it like rights of refugees to return to their occupied homelands, ending Zionist imposed blockade on Gaza and also rising their voice to put an end on Zionist occupation, Iran Press reported.

Palestinian protests 'Great March of Return', began on March 30, 2018, for the commemoration of Land Day, when in 1976 six Palestinian citizens in occupied lands were killed by Israeli forces after protesting the confiscation of their land, Iran Press reported.

Demonstrations continued until May 15, which marked 70 years since the Nakba, the ethnic cleansing of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians by Zionist militias to make way for the creation of the so-called state of Israel.

According to latest statistics, more than 290 Palestinians have been martyred and over 23,000 others injured by Israeli forces since the outbreak of the 'Great March of Return' protests at Gaza border on March 30, 2018.
