At least one Palestinian was killed and over 54 others were injured by live bullets or rubber-coated rounds today, as Israeli forces attacked hundreds of protesters taking part in the weekly Great March of Return at the fence separating besieged Gaza Strip from Israel, according to medical sources.

Over 310 Palestinians have been killed and about 17,000 others injured by Israeli forces since the outbreak of the Great March of Return protests in Gaza on March 30, 2018.
The weekly protests call for lifting the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip and for the return of the Palestinian refugees to their ancestral homes in pre-1948 Palestine.
