The Health Ministry in Gaza reported that two Palestinians were killed by Israeli fire east of Jabalya on Friday as thousands of Palestinians arrived to the tents set up near the Gaza border in the fourth consecutive week of Gaza's March of Return mass protests، Haaretz reported.
The march is a month-and-a- half-long protest organized by Hamas near the border fence. This week، the march is dedicated to the "martyrs" that have died in previous weeks. Last week، the march was centered around burning Israeli flags. The Hamas government in Gaza has built sand barriers alongside the areas where the protestors are to gather to protect those participating، as in previous weeks. Still، thousands expected try to approach the border fence with Israel.
