On Saturday, the Israeli aircraft carried out an airstrike on positions of the Hamas Palestinian movement in southern part of the Gaza Strip.

The tensions between the Israeli and Palestinians flared up amid the Great March of Return rally being held by Palestinians since March 30 at the border between Gaza and Israel. The demonstrators claim the right of return for people displaced during the war after Israel's creation in 1948.

The Israeli forces have been suppressing the demonstrators using lethal weapons, citing security concerns. According to Palestinian medics, since March 30, at least 115 Palestinians have been killed during protests, while over 13,300 people have been injured.
