Since March 30, Palestinians have been holding mass rallies near the Gaza Strip border, known as the Great March of Return. Since then, dozens of Palestinians have been killed, and over 1,000 others have been injured, as the Israeli forces have been suppressing the demonstrations. The protesters intend to go on with the march until May 15, when they will commemorate the 70th anniversary of the displacement.
