Palestinians continued the ‘March of Return’ protests along Gaza’s eastern border near Khan Younis on Friday.

Drone footage shows the scale of the protests, with injured protesters being carried off into ambulances, and smoke from flaming tires rising into the sky.

The Gazan health ministry said that at least 968 people were wounded by gunfire and tear gas on Friday. Since the protests began three weeks ago, at least 28 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces.

Israel does not release figures and rejects suggestions that it uses excessive force. The six-week long ‘Great March’ is a demand to what Palestinian protesters say is their right to return to land which has now been claimed by Israel.
