At 4:00pm on Thursday, 29 March 2018, Israeli forces located on the southeastern borders of Burij refugee camp in Middle Area governorate opened fire and launched tear-gas canisters at tens of protesters joining the “Great Return March” demonstration near the eastern borders. The demonstration has been called for by a national committee of Palestinian factions to mark Land Day. Some protesters threw stones at Israeli forces, which responded by using live ammunition, rubber-coated metal bullets and tear-gas canisters. One protester was wounded by live ammunition. Israeli shooting at protesters continued until 7:30pm on the same day.
