GAZA, Over 60 Palestinians were shot and injured by live ammunition fired by Israeli soldiers at protesters on the Gaza side of their common borders.
Thousands of Palestinians marched to the border to mark the 71st anniversary of the Nakba (catastrophe) and to demand their right of return to the homes their families were forced to leave in 1948 when Israel was created.
Israeli soldiers, whose presence at the border was beefed up in anticipation of the anniversary protests, opened fire at the Palestinians injuring 62 people, two were declared by hospitals as in serious condition. Two medics were among the injured.
