    Israeli forces have fired live ammunition and tear gas at Palestinians, protesting for a sixth week at the Israel-Gaza border.

    Demonstrators burned tyres near the fence to use as a smokescreen from Israeli gunfire.

    At least 350 people have been injured - three of them critically.

    But the protesters, even some of the wounded, keep coming back.

    Al Jazeera’s Harry Fawcett reports from the Gaza-Israel border.
