GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Two Palestinians were killed and 246 others were injured with Israeli live bullets on the 18th Friday of the "Great March of Return" in the besieged Gaza Strip.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza confirmed that Ghazi Muhammad Abu Mustafa, 43, succumbed to wounds he sustained with a live bullet in the head earlier Friday in eastern Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip.

The Ministry added that 14-year-old Majdi Ramzi Kamal al-Satri was also killed by a live bullet in the head in eastern Rafah.

Three paramedics sustained moderate wounds by Israeli live fire in eastern Jabaliya.

The Ministry said that all injuries that arrived to field hospital and hospitals were with direct live bullets.

Israeli forces suppressed Palestinian crowds at return camps using live bullets and tear-gas bombs.

Sources added that Israeli soldiers were not deployed at the borders, but that only armored military vehicles were seen.

Meanwhile, an Israeli drone fired at least one missile targeting a group of Palestinians in eastern al-Tuffah neighborhood of Gaza City; no injuries were reported.

The "Great March of Return" protests were launched by thousands of Palestinian civilians in Gaza -- which has suffered from a decade-long Israeli siege -- who took to the borders to demand their right of return as refugees to their original homelands, now in present-day Israel.
