Palestinians in Gaza are holding another mass demonstration against "Israeli" occupation forces for the fourth week in a row dubbed this time "Friday of the Detainees and Martyrs" as part of the Great March of Return.
Many protesters have since Thursday been staying in camps and sit-in tents near the fence separating the besieged Gaza Strip from the "Israeli"-occupied territories.
Tens of thousands of Gazans attend the mass rally.
Meanwhile, the Zionist forces dropped leaflets in the Gaza Strip on Friday, warning Palestinians not to approach the fence, where the regime has deployed Special Forces, sharpshooters and armored vehicles.
Organizers have, however, said they have this week moved the tents 50 meters closer towards the fence "as a message of persistence from our people to the world that we are moving forwards towards our rightful goals."
Earlier in the day, a Palestinian was wounded when the occupation forces opened fire on a refugee camp in east of Khan Yunis.
The Great March of Return began on March 30 and will last for six weeks. The Zionist entity has responded to the peaceful demonstrations with an iron fist, martyring more than 30 unarmed Palestinians over the past three weeks.
The Tel Aviv regime has come under criticism in the international community by allowing its snipers to open fire on the unarmed protester that come close to the fence.
