GAZA - Dozens of Palestinians were wounded Friday as thousands demonstrated on the Gaza border for the sixth week in a row in a wave of protests that has already seen nearly 50 people killed by Israeli fire.
Medics treated 170 demonstrators for gunshot wounds and tear gas, with 69 taken to hospital, a spokesman for the Gaza health ministry said.
Black smoke billowed over a protest camp east of Gaza City where Palestinians were burning tyres and flying kites, at least one carrying a Molotov cocktail intended on setting fire to nearby Israeli fields.
After advancing toward the border fence, protesters would retreat when the Israeli army fired tear gas.(FA)
