Gaza to mark anniversary of Great March of Return protests

The Great March of Return protests began on March 30 last year after a call to action against the Israeli siege.

The UN has appealed for calm before the one-year anniversary of Palestinian protests along the border fence with Israel.

The anniversary comes after a week of Israeli air raids in response to a rocket fired from Gaza that injured seven near Tel Aviv.

Gaza’s Ministry of Health has said that Israeli snipers have shot over 6,500 protesters, killing more than 250 – including children, journalists and medical workers.
