BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 P.M.) – Hundreds of women and girls attended the ‘Palestinian Women for Return and Breaking the Siege’ rally, with several people left injured by Israeli soldiers, near the border fence in eastern Gaza on Tuesday.
Relatives of those killed and injured in the ‘Great March of Return’ were among the protesters.
People were seen being carried away from the border fence, some on stretchers. Those injured were taken to Shifa Hospital for treatment.
The Israeli Defence Force (IDF) used tear gas in an effort to control the demonstration, causing many to suffocate.
The ‘Great March of Return’ protests were launched along the Gaza-Israel border on March 30 to demand the right for Palestinians to return to their pre-1948 homes.
