Death Toll for Gaza’s March of Return Keeps Rising, Call for International Protection
May 11, 2018
Two Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces and over 200 were injured on Friday, as thousands of Gaza residents swarmed the Israeli border, for the seventh week of the great return march protests.
SOT#1 Saqer – protestor: "We call upon the international community and the security council to take a humane reasonable action to protect the Palestinian protestors. As you can see behind me they are armless, However the Israeli side is full of snipers who directly shoot men, women, elderlys and children."
The demonstrators raised pictures of hundreds of Palestinians who were killed by Israeli forces, and political prisoners currently held in Israeli jails.
Around 49 Palestinians including two journalists have been killed, and over 7000 wounded, since the inception of ongoing protests on the Gaza-Israel border on March 30th.
Noor Harazeen reports from Gaza about the seventh week of the “March of Return” protests, which left two more dead and 200 injured from shots fired by the Israeli military at the protests.
