    Last week, twenty Palestinians, including five ambulance workers, were wounded in clashes with the Israeli Defense Forces during protests at the border of the Gaza Strip.

    Thousands of Palestinians started protesting Israel's blockade of the Gaza Strip at the border on Friday, Hamas spokesman Abdel Latif al-Qanoa told Sputnik.

    "Our nation continues its peaceful manifestations on the 42nd Friday of Great March of Return," al-Qanoa said.

    Palestinians boosted their protest activity on the Gaza border in late March, when they initiated their anti-Israeli campaign dubbed the Great March of Return. Since then, the rallies have been held weekly, followed by clashes between Palestinians and the IDF. Dozens of people were killed and hundreds of others were injured in the violence.
