UPDATE | Israeli forces kill six Palestinians, injure 252 at Gaza border

GAZA, At least six Palestinians were killed and 252 others injured by live bullets or sustained suffocation from teargas inhalation on Friday as Israeli forces continued to attack the ongoing Great March of Return protests at Gaza-Israel border, according to the Ministry of Health.

The forces fired live bullets and rubber-coated steel rounds at the protesters who gathered at many encampments along the border, killing six protesters and injuring 252 others, 154 of them by live gunshots.

Some of the wounded were moved to hospital and others were treated in the field hospitals.

More than 204 Palestinians have been killed and over 22,000 others injured by Israeli forces since the outbreak of the Great March of Return protests at Gaza border on March 30.

Most of the casualties occurred on May 14 when Israeli forces attacked Palestinian protesters marking the 70th anniversary of Israel’s occupation of historical Palestine and the ensuing ethnic cleansing of half a million Palestinian refugees.
