October 12: 29th Friday of the Great Return March


While media coverage of the Great March of Return has greatly declined since the beginning of the protests on March 30, civilians in Gaza continue to organize the marches, with thousands participating every week. This week, while demonstrating peacefully on their own land, six Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces and over 252 were wounded; 154 with live ammunition.

According to the Gaza Health Ministry, over 183 protestors have been killed since the beginning of the marches, and over 18,000 injured.
