Israeli occupation forces murdered 30 Palestinian demonstrators and wounded 3,000 others during first eight days of demonstrations of Great March of Return.

During the second Friday, the Israeli occupation forces killed eight demonstrators and wounded 1,454 others.

Spokesman of the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza Ashraf al-Qidra said that two demonstrators died of their wounds during the night, rising the number to ten.

He also said that 1,454 demonstrators had been wounded during the violent Israel crackdown, noting that most of them were shot with live and explosive bullets.

One of the dead, he said, and three of the wounded were journalists. He said that the journalists were shot while wearing their vests, which clearly identify them.

It is worth mentioning that the Israeli occupation forces killed 17 Palestinians and wounded more than 1,600 others during the first Friday of the Great March of Return.

During the week, three of those, who were in critical conditions, succumbed to their wounds to bring the total number of deaths during the last week to 20.
