Thousands of Palestinians gathered at the border fence in eastern Gaza, marking the 10th weekly protest of the Great March of Return aimed at drawing attention to the crippling Israeli-Egyptian blockade and demanding the right for Palestinians to return to former homes in what's now Israel.

The crowds gathered at five tent camps near the border fence separating Israel and Gaza. 

Doctors from Gaza's Health Ministry on June 1, 2018 say tear gas used by Israeli forces reportedly contains unknown chemicals that cause side effects such as hysteria burning of the face and nervous breakdowns.(TRTWorld)
