Israeli soldiers shot, Friday, two young Palestinian men with live fire, including one who suffered a serious head injury, after the army attacked protesters east of Jabalia, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.

Palestinian medical sources said the seriously wounded young man, Ahmad Nabil al-‘Aqel, was shot with a live round in the head, and was rushed to the Indonesian Hospital, in Beit Lahia.

The two Palestinians were injured just as hundreds of Palestinians marched on their lands, near the border fence, on the fourth week of the “Great March of Return.”

Hundreds of Palestinians started gathering near the border fence, demanding their internationally-guaranteed Right of Return.

The protests started on March 30th, which marks the Palestinian Land Day, and are planned to continue until May 15th, the 70th anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba (Catastrophe), in which more than 700,000 Palestinians were forcibly displaced by Israeli forces in 1948, and their villages and towns were destroyed, prior to the establishment of Israel in historic Palestine.

The army killed at least 34 Palestinians, and injured thousands or protesters since the nonviolent protests started on March 30th.
