Notwithstanding the inclement weather, an estimated 10,000 Gazans, including senior Hamas leaders, participated in several rallies on Friday near the security fence in weekly “Great March of Return” protests, throwing stones at IDF troops and attempting to damage the border barrier.
Thirty-seven demonstrators were injured in clashes along the Gaza-Israel border, according to the Hamas-affiliated Palestinian Health Ministry.
The Health Ministry reported that 17 of those demonstrators were wounded by IDF gunfire.
This is the 37th week of the ongoing protests.
