Dozens of Palestinians get injured during Gaza border protests

Palestinian Health Ministry said at least 46 people were injured at a protest along Gaza's border with Israel on Friday.

Footage shows demonstrators lobbing projectiles towards the Israeli forces and being carried on stretchers before being taken to hospital or treated at the site.

Health officials say Israeli forces fired live and rubber-coated steel round as well as tear gas on Palestinians.

The rally was held as part of The Great March of Return which was launched in late March 2018. The series of protests to demand the right for Palestinians to return to their ancestral lands and end the blockade of Gaza has now entered its 59th week.
