Fierce Clashes Continue At Gaza-Israel Border Fence

As part of the six-week rallies called "the Great March of Return", which started on March 30, Palestinians held five rallies in eastern Gaza Strip along with the border with Israel to demonstrate.

According to sources from the Ministry of Health of Gaza, among the injured were civilians who were wounded by Israeli soldiers, as well as people with symptoms of suffocation due to tear gas inhalation. The Israeli military says snipers only target the main "instigators".

More than 10,000 protestors marched along the Israel-Gaza border while resorting to burning tires and Israeli flags, various media houses quoted the Gaza Health Ministry as saying.

The military said that demonstrators hurled an explosive device and several fire bombs near the fence in what it said was an apparent attempt to damage it.

"The Palestinian women are an integral part of the society. today they are to prove this", Sarah said after she gave a vehicle tire to a masked protestor.

He said, "Everyone's connected to Hamas, everyone gets a salary from Hamas, and all the activists trying to challenge us and breach the border are Hamas military wing activists".

The protest began on March 30 and is expected to culminate on May 15. "Nakba Day" recognizes the approximately 750,000 people who left their homes in the violence leading up to and during the May 1948 war between Israel and neighboring countries.The protests, called "The March of Return", are calling for Palestinians who left Israeli areas during and around the May 1948 war and their descendants to be granted the "right to return" to those areas.

Israel has declared a no-go zone close to the border fence, and deployed army sharpshooters along it.

The health officials said that among those hurt Friday was a Gaza journalist who was in serious condition with a bullet wound in the abdomen. Israel refuses to recognize Palestinian journalists as professionals or distinguish between demonstrators and photographers, while issuing press cards to Israeli and global journalists.

"Media reports suggest that on Friday, Israeli soldiers will once again be ordered by high command - in contravention of worldwide law - to engage in sniper fire on Gaza residents who come within 300 meters of the border fence or engage in other non-life-threatening actions".

"We want to live like everyone else in the world", he said.

So far, around 35 Palestinians have been killed during the protests. Israel has the ultimate say on what essential supplies enter Gaza.

Palestinians are streaming to tent camps along Gaza's border with Israel for the third of what are to be weekly mass protests until mid-May.

The group has been criticised in Israel for publishing often anonymous testimony by current or former Israeli soldiers who have misgivings about their military service and treatment of Palestinians.

"The national struggle and defending the refugees' right to return are not limited to men".
