A Palestinian was killed and 20 were wounded by Israeli live fire during protests at the fence separating Gaza from Israel, on Friday, the Gaza Health Ministry said. Two of the wounded were said to be in serious condition.

Thousands of Palestinians marched towards the eastern borders of Gaza on the 26th Friday of “The Great March of Return.”

A Ma’an reporter said that Israeli forces directly targeted journalists and ambulances with tear-gas bombs in eastern Gaza City.

Israeli forces also opened fire at youths gathering in eastern al-Breij refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip as they attempted to cut off parts of the Israeli security fence.

In eastern Jabaliya in the northern Gaza Strip, Israeli forces heavily fired tear-gas bombs at protesters.

Since protests began on March 30, Israeli forces have killed over 170 Palestinians in the besieged coastal enclave.
