Since protests began on March 30, Israeli forces have killed at least 166 Palestinians in the besieged coastal enclave.


For more than four months, Palestinians in the Gaza Strip have protested along the fence with Israel demanding their right to return to the homes and land their families were expelled from 70 years ago.

The Great March of Return rallies culminated on May 15 to mark what Palestinians refer to as the Nakba, or Catastrophe - a reference to the forced removal of 750,000 Palestinians from their homes and villages to clear the way for Israel's establishment in 1948.

The mass Friday demonstrations have since continued.

Since the protests began on March 30, Israeli forces have killed at least 166 Palestinians in the besieged coastal enclave and wounded more than 18,000 people, according to health officials in Gaza.
