The Great March of Return has been held every Friday since March 30, 2018, by Palestinians who demand their right to return to their territory and an end to the Israeli occupation
Since then, over 250 Palestinians have been killed and over 20,000 injured. Many survivors have lost their limbs after being shot by Israeli soldiers. Human rights organizations have condemned Israel’s “shot-to-kill-or-maim” policy
