Dozens of Palestinians were wounded Friday evening by Israeli occupation forces during their participation in the return marches along the border strip east of the Gaza Strip.

According to our correspondent, large crowds estimated at tens of thousands arrived this afternoon at the five camps of the return camps amid a massive deployment of the occupation forces and their armoured vehicles at the border.

He added that the occupation forces opened fire and fired missiles at the participants in these demonstrations, targeting Palestinians who approached the separation fence with a number of injuries, including injuries in serious cases.

He noted that the Israeli occupation planes fired several rockets at the marchers in the east of Khan Yunis and Gaza, where a number of serious injuries were reported among demonstrators.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza said in a preliminary statement that the total of casualties up to five o'clock this evening in the east of the Gaza Strip, 52 were shot by Israeli occupation.

One of the injuries was two serious cases of an elderly woman aged 70, he said, adding that a Palestinian journalist had been injured.

Tens of thousands of Palestinians took part in the Gaza Strip on Friday to participate in the 30th Friday of the return marches and break the siege, which bears the name: "Together Gaza, the West Bank and Fuse."

The Palestinians have been participating in peaceful marches, near the fence between Gaza and the occupied Palestinian Territory in 1948, since March 30 March, demanding the return of the refugees to their towns and villages from which they were abandoned in 1948 and breaking the siege of Gaza.

These peaceful marches are violently repressed by the occupying army, with heavy gunfire and poisonous gas canisters being fired at the demonstrators.

Since the marches were launched, 217 Palestinians have been killed, including 10 martyrs whose bodies have been detained and not registered in the statements of the Palestinian Ministry of Health, while 22,000 others have been injured, including 460 in high-risk situations.
