The "Israeli" occupation military sent more than 100 snipers to the Gaza border in preparation for a planned mass Palestinian demonstration near the frontier of the besieged enclave.
Meanwhile, organizers of the march hope thousands in Gaza will answer their call to flock, starting on Friday, to tent cities in five locations along the occupied border in a six-week protest for a right of return of Palestinian refugees to what is now the Zionist entity.
Citing ‘security'-related pretexts, the "Israeli" military enforced a "no go" zone for Palestinians on land in Gaza adjacent to the occupation entity's border fence.
In this regard, "Israel's" military chief Gadi Eizenkot told the Yedioth Ahronoth daily that the military would not allow "mass infiltration" or tolerate damage to the barrier during the protests.
"We have deployed more than 100 sharpshooters who were called up from all of the military's units, primarily from the Special Forces," Eizenkot confirmed in the interview.
"Israeli" occupation soldiers have frequently used tear gas, rubber bullets and live ammunition against demonstrators whom the military said hurled rocks or petrol bombs at them.
