Hundreds of Palestinians marched along the border between the Gaza Strip and the 1948 occupied Palestinian territories on the 51st Friday of the Great March of Return.

The Israeli occupation forces heavily fired live ammunition and tear gas bombs at the unarmed protesters, while groups of Palestinian youths launched fire balloons over the border fence.
