TEHRAN, Mar 02 - 145 Palestinians were wounded by the Israeli forces during the 49th March of Return on Gaza border.

TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Palestinian Red Crescent announced that on Friday’s rallies, 145 Palestinians were injured including 34 by live fire and 18 by plastic bullets while others were hit by tear gas.

Friday's demonstration was the 49th in a row since the weekly protests began in March, 2018, Iran Press reported.

In recent weeks, several thousands of Palestinians participated in the protests and a few dozens have been wounded every week.

Some 267 Palestinians have been killed and over 27,000 Palestinians wounded by live ammunition since the demonstrations' inception.'

Palestinian protests 'Great March of Return', began on March 30, 2018, for the commemoration of Land Day, when in 1976 six Palestinian citizens in occupied lands were killed by Israeli forces after protesting the confiscation of their land.

Demonstrations continued until May 15, which marked 70 years since the Nakba, the ethnic cleansing of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians by Zionist militias to make way for the creation of the so-called state of Israel.
