The Great March of Return protests began on March 30, for the commemoration of Land Day, when, in 1976, six Palestinian citizens of Israel were killed by Israeli forces, after protesting the confiscation of their land.

Demonstrations reached a peak on May 14th, 2018, which marked 70 years since the Nakba – the ethnic cleansing of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians by Zionist militias. It was also the day that Donald Trump moved the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, thereby denying the right to exist of the hundreds of thousands of Palestinians living in the city.

On May 14th, Israeli forces committed a massacre against the unarmed demonstrators in Gaza, killing 60.

Since then, over 137 Palestinians have been killed and some 15,000 others injured by Israeli forces attacking protests in Gaza since March 30th 2018.

The Israeli bullet caused a laceration to his brain, and he immediately succumbed to the wound, and died on the scene.

In using excessive lethal force against the peaceful protesters in eastern Gaza Strip for the 11th Friday in a row, Israeli forces killed 2 Palestinian civilians, including Yasser.

Dr. Ashraf al-Qedra, the spokesperson of the Health Ministry in Gaza, has confirmed that Israeli soldiers killed two Palestinians, including a child, and injured 415 others, including 11 children, two women (one of whom is a journalist) and three medics, in the “Great Return March” processions along the eastern parts of the Gaza Strip.

Friday’s protest, part of ongoing processions for the fourteenth consecutive week, was dubbed “From Gaza to the West Bank, one fate, one blood,” expressing rejection of any attempt to isolate the Gaza Strip, and consider it a separate entity from the rest of occupied Palestine.

The soldiers used sniper rifles to target the unarmed protesters, in addition to firing dozens of rubber-coated steel bullets, concussion grenades and high-velocity gas bombs.

Furthermore, the soldiers deliberately targeted a Palestinian Red Crescent ambulance in Malka area, east of Gaza city, inflicting damage and causing its team to suffer the severe effects of teargas inhalation.

It is worth mentioning that a local folk-dance troupe (Dabka) danced to Palestinian and Arab music, expressing the steadfastness and determination to continue the struggle until achieve the internationally guaranteed legitimate rights of the Palestinian people of liberation, independence and sovereignty.

Following a decision by the highest political and military echelons, the Israeli forces decided to continue to use excessive force against the peaceful protesters, who pose no threat to the life of the soldiers.

At approximately 15:00, hundreds of civilians, including women, children and entire families, started swarming to 5 encampments established by the Supreme National Authority for the Great March of Return and Breaking Siege in eastern Rafah City; Khuza’ah in Khan Younis; al-Boreij in the Central Gaza Strip; Shija’eyya neighborhood in Gaza City; and eastern Jabalia in the northern Gaza Strip.

The number of participants gradually increased, reaching a peak at approximately 16:30, in the five demonstration areas, and they were estimated at thousands of men, elders, women and children.

According to the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR), the protesters were raising flags, chanting slogans and national songs, and flying kites, while hundreds of them, including children and women, approached the border fence, set fire to tires and attempted to throw stones at the Israeli forces.

Moreover, the protesters removed the barbed wire fence established by the Israeli forces inside the Palestinian territories around 50 meters away from the main border fence.

The Israeli shooting, which continued until 19:30, resulted in the killing of 2 civilians, including a child, in eastern Rafah and Khan Younis respectively, both south of the Gaza Strip when they were among other protestors around 100-200 meters away from the border fence.

In addition to Yasser, Mohamed Fawzi Mohamed al-Hamiydah (24) was hit with a live bullet to the abdomen when he was in eastern Rafah and killed.

The Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) condemns this new crime committed by the Israeli forces, believing it is as a result of Israel’s enjoying impunity thanks to the U.S. and so encouraging the Israeli forces to commit further crimes upon an official decision by the highest military and political echelons.
