#GreatReturnMarch - Palestinian protests in Gaza, West Bank and inside the Green Line

On the fourth Friday of the #GreatReturnMarch Israel continues its criminal shoot-to-kill-and-maim policy towards the over 10 thousand Palestinians in protest inside the occupied and besieged Gaza Strip. Some 30 protests where also held in the occupied West Bank. Inside the Green Line, a mass demonstration denounced that “Your Independence is Our Nakba (‘catastrophe’ in Arabic)”.

On Friday, during the protests that have been dedicated to the Martyrs and Prisoners of the Palestinian people, four young Palestinians in the Gaza Strip have been killed and 729 injured, 45 of them have been shot with live ammunition. Mohammed Ibrahim Ayyoub, 15, Ahmed Rashad, 24, Ahmed Abu Aqil, 25 and Saad Abdul Majid Abdul-Aal Abu Taha, 29, have been assassinated by Israeli snipers. Only Nickolay Mladenov, US Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, has still expressed outrage in his tweet:

"It is OUTRAGEOUS to shoot at children! How does the killing of a child in #Gaza today help #peace? It doesn’t! It fuels anger and breeds more killing. #Children must be protected from #violence, not exposed to it, not killed! This tragic incident must be investigated."
