At least 52 Palestinians were wounded in Israeli attacks on Friday as they joined a rally on the eastern border of the Gaza Strip, said a Palestinian medical spokesman.
The injured protesters, including two journalists, were taken to nearby hospitals, spokesman for the Palestinian Health Ministry Ashraf al-Qudra said in a press statement.
They were part of thousands of Palestinians who thronged the eastern frontiers of the Israeli-blockaded Palestinian enclave in the context of weekly rallies of the so-called Great March of Return, he said.
Meanwhile, the Higher National Commission for the Great March of Return defied that Palestinians would continue non-violent rallies until their legitimate rights were fully restored.
The commission called on Palestinians to join the 70th Friday protests, marking the World Youth Day.
Since March 30, 2018, Palestinian people have been staging protests against Israel, calling for lifting the 12-year-old crippling blockade imposed by Israel on the territory.
