Israeli occupation forces wounded 97 Palestinian protesters, including 45 children, two women during 79th consecutive Friday protest staged along the eastern fence of Gaza Strip.
Thousands of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip gathered along the eastern fence of Gaza to take part in the weekly anti-occupation protests known as the Great March of Return and Breaking the Siege.
Protesters from across the Gaza Strip headed to the eastern areas of the coastal enclave raising anti-occupation banners and Palestinian flags.
Since the Gaza rallies began in March last year, more than 310 protesters have been killed and thousands more wounded by Israeli forces.
Demonstrators demand an end to the 13-year-old strict Israeli blockade imposed on the Gaza Strip.
The siege has shattered the coastal enclave’s economy and deprived its 2 million inhabitants of free movement in and out from Gaza and prevented many basic amenities.
