Gaza, MINA – All Gazans on Friday prepared to attend the second year Great March of Return and blockade in East Gaza.
The national committee of the Great March of Return called on all citizens in Gaza to attend and participate widely in today’s action, which took the theme “Glory Will Win.”
According to Palestinian Information Center on Friday, residents were asked to attend the five return camp spots scattered in East Gaza.
Abdul Latif Qanu, a Hamas spokesman, stressed that the return parade would continue, and the agreement to revoke blockade continued on schedule and gradually, without any political prices to be paid.
On his Facebook page, Qanu explained the important points of understanding reached on Egyptian mediation, including the expansion of sea area to 15 nautical miles, and UN donations to open employment opportunities for 20 thousand Palestinians.
Qanu explained that this understanding would not have an impact on the return parade, without political prices, and we continued to negotiate with mediation of Egypt and Qatar.
Palestinian people since March 30, 2018 held a peaceful march, near the border separating Gaza and occupied Palestinian territories in 1948, demanding the return of refugees to the cities and villages where they had been expelled in 1948, and demanding the removal of Gaza blockade.
Israeli military responded to repressive and criminal marches, opened fire on demonstrators using tear gas, rubber bullets and live ammunition, which left 282 demonstrators dead, including 11 bodies still held by Israel and not yet listed on the health ministry’s list of victims. While the wounded reached 31 thousand people, including 500 seriously injured. (T/Sj/P2)
