GAZA CITY, March 30 (MENA) – Two Palestinians were injured Saturday by Israeli fire east of Gaza City as a rally started to mark the 43rd anniversary of the Land Day.
Eyewitnesses said the Israeli army forces shot fire and used tear gas in large amounts near return camps, which led to the injuries.
A million-person protest is expected today along the border with Israel marking the Land Day and the first anniversary of the launch of the March of Return protests, which so far claimed the lives of more than 250 Palestinians and left over 10,000 injured by Israeli forces gunfire.
