Palestinians from all walks of life thronged the so-called buffer zone in the east of the Gaza Strip to take part in the Great March of Return rallies.

Israeli forces attacked the peaceful protesters, using live ammunition against them.

Demonstrators condemned the warming of relations between some Arab countries in the Persian Gulf region and Tel Aviv.

In an exclusive interview with Press TV, senior Hamas official Ismail Radwan blasted the rush by the Arab states to normalize ties with the Israeli regime.

In particular, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine slammed a recent visit by a Saudi football team to the occupied Jerusalem al-Quds under the protection of Israeli police.

Observers say some Arab countries in the Persian Gulf region have moved from normalization with the Tel Aviv into full partnership against the resistance.

Palestinians in Gaza have been protesting to demand the right of return for millions of Palestinians refugees to their ancestral land that was occupied in 1948 upon the creation of the Israeli regime as well as the complete lifting of the crippling Israeli blockade.

Protesters here condemned the normalization of ties with Israel, calling on Arab countries to help Palestinians instead of stabbing them in the back.
