Three Palestinian citizens were killed on Friday in different Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza said that Abdullah Abu Mallouh, 33, and Alaa al-Boubali, 29, were killed in an Israeli airstrike on a Hamas resistance post.
Israeli tanks stationed at the border later heavily opened fire at the Great March of Return camps east of al-Bureij refugee camp in the middle area of the Gaza Strip.
Earlier in the day, the Israeli occupation army announced that two of its soldiers were injured in a shooting attack on their patrol near Gaza border.
Thousands of Palestinians marched along the border between the Gaza Strip and the 1948 occupied Palestinian territories on the 57th Friday of the Great March of Return.
The Israeli occupation forces heavily fired live ammunition and tear gas bombs at the peaceful protesters, killing a 19-year-old Palestinian youth identified as Raed Abu Tir, and injuring 50 demonstrators.
The Gaza Strip Palestinians launched the Great March of Return on 30 March 2018 to demand the return of Palestinian refugees and call for ending the 13-year-long blockade on the coastal enclave.
Since the start of the border protests, the Israeli occupation army has killed 285 protesters and injured over 32,000 others.
