Alwaght- Israeli regime forces have attacked a weekly peaceful protest march at the Gaza border killing a female Palestinian protester and injuring several demonstrators.
A number of Palestinian protestors also got suffocated by Zionist gas bombs during the Friday Protests aimed at breaking the Israeli blockade on the Strip.
The protest started after Friday Prayers flocking into Gaza Strip’s border with the occupied territories to participate in weekly “Great March of Return’ protests now in their 42nd consecutive week.
Since March 30th 2018, Palestinians have held weekly protests on Fridays for their forgotten rights: The right to return to their stolen lands and an end to Israel's years-long siege.
The protests, dubbed the Great March of Return, take place near the fence, separating Gaza from the occupied territories. So far, more than 200 Palestinians have been killed and over 20,000 others in the clashes. Israeli regime forces have killed women, children, medics and journalists during the peaceful protests.
The peaceful rallies and Israeli regime’s hard-handed crackdown against Palestinians have largely been ignored by western media outlets.
Elsewhere, Israeli regime forces shot and injured a Palestinian for allegedly attempting to carry out a stabbing attack in the illegal Zionist settlement of Kiryat Arba near Al Khalil (Hebron) City in the southern occupied West Bank, on Friday afternoon. The Palestinian Ministry of Health identified the injured Palestinian as Ghazi Skafi, 35.
Tensions continue to simmer in the occupied Palestinian territories more than a year following US President Donald Trump's recognition of Al Quds (Jerusalem) as Israeli regime’s capital and relocation of the US embassy to the occupied city.
On December 21, 2017, the United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly voted in favor of a resolution that calls on the US to withdraw its controversial policy shift.
Despite the vote, the United States went ahead with the embassy transfer on May 14 last year, triggering demonstrations in the occupied Palestinian territories, Iran, Turkey, Egypt, Jordan, Tunisia, Algeria, Iraq, Morocco and other Muslim countries.
