GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- One Palestinian was killed and at least six others were injured as Israeli forces suppressed the weekly Great March of Return protests at the eastern borders of the besieged Gaza Strip, on Friday.

Spokesperson of the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza, Ashraf al-Qidra, said that Karam Muhammad Fayyad, 26, from Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip, was succumbed Friday evening to wounds he sustained during protests.

Israeli forces used live bullets and rubber-coated steel bullets to suppress protesters who had gathered at return camps at the eastern borders of Gaza.

One journalist, a paramedic and a child were among those injured.
"The Great March of Return" protests were launched on March 30th 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.
