GAZA, PALESTINOW.COM — Medical teams treated dozens of different cases of direct gas and rubber bullets, including a volunteer paramedic and a journalist, the health ministry said.
On Friday, a paramedic was wounded by a tear gas canister fired by Israeli occupation forces east of Khan Younis on the 59th anniversary of the return march and the siege of the eastern Gaza Strip.
Thousands of people gathered in the Gaza Strip to participate in the “Grand Compassionate and Takaful” Friday as part of the Greater Return March, which has been going on since 30 March last year on the eastern border of the Gaza Strip.
The Commission called on the citizens to go to the return camps in the eastern Gaza Strip, stressing the peaceful march and its mass and its continuation to achieve its goals, which is to protect our right to return to Palestine and to break the unjust siege on Gaza and emphasize the freedom of Gaza and its right to life in security and peace.
The return marches committee announced the cancellation of protests last Friday near the border fence between the Gaza Strip and Israel to “ease” the citizens in the month of Ramadan.
