KHAN YUNIS, Palestine – Israeli border forces deployed tear gas against Palestinians who had gathered in Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip on Friday for the March of Return.

The Israeli military expects some 50,000 to gather for protests along the border, compared to 35,000 a week ago.

The six-week long rallies demand what Palestinian protesters say is their right to return to land which has now been claimed by Israel.

At least 20 Palestinians are believed to have been killed by Israeli troops, since the March of Return started last week. Israel has no figures and claimed the vast majority killed were Hamas operatives.
