Israel forces continue to 'shoot to kill' Gaza protesters

Spokesman for Great March of Return protest on Gaza border told Al Jazeera that despite use of 'shoot-to-kill and shoot-to-maim' tactics, 'people are quite determined to come, to organise non-violent peaceful protests'.

    Gaza's health ministry says Israeli soldiers have killed more than 30 protesters and injured at least 1,600 others with live fire, since demonstrations on the border began more than two weeks ago.

    Friday's protests are being dubbed as "flag burning day" and are part of an ongoing call for a "right of return" for Palestinians.

    Al Jazeera's Harry fawcett reports from Gaza.
