Scores of Palestinians were injured as a result of Israeli occupation forces’ crackdown on the 15th Naval march in the Gaza Strip today.

Occupation forces opened fire with their machine guns and fired a barrage of gas bombs at the peaceful demonstrators.

Dozens were injured as a result.

Organizers said:

“The march of return will not stop until the fulfillment of all its goals, first and foremost the lifting of the siege completely from the Gaza Strip and end the suffering of two million besieged Palestinians.”

Palestinians launched in the “Great March of Return” protests on March 30, calling for the end of the 11-year-old Israeli siege on the Gaza Strip and for their right to return to homes from which their families were forced out in 1948 to make way for the creation of the state of Israel.

  1. The IDF doesn’t fire on peaceful protesters. When it comes to Palestinians there is also no such thing as “peaceful protest”, it is an oxymoron. Opening fire with machine guns, yet no one killed? This means the IDF are either really skilled or need remedial practice on the rifle range. This whole report stinks of bias.
