Since the Gaza rallies began in March last year, nearly 270 protesters were martyred, with thousands of others injured.
On Saturday protests in Gaza marked the one year anniversary of the Great March of Return and the 43rd anniversary of Palestinian Land Day.
March 30th marks first anniversary of Gaza's "Great March of Return" border protests and Land Day amid Israeli expansion of its settlements and continuation of it occupation and siege.
Gaza's Health Ministry says a Palestinian man was shot dead by Israeli forces near the perimeter fence with Israel, hours before Gaza anniversary rally, one year after the first of weekly Great March of Return protests.
Muhammed Abu Halima, 22, was shot and killed by Israeli troops during a protest at the Gaza Strip's border with Israel, bringing the death toll in the "Great March of Return" protests to 136 since they began in March.
Since protests on the Gaza-Israel border began on March 30, Israeli troops have killed at least 115 Palestinians and wounded more than 13,000 people, including 3,600 by live ammunition, according to the Red Cross.
Israeli aggression against Palestinians is rooted in fear: the fear that Palestinians have not surrendered their land, their identities, or the will to resist.
The death toll by Israeli aggression has risen to 44 since March 30, when Palestinians began staging protests to demand the 'right of return' to their homes, occupied by the Tel Aviv government decades ago.
Palestinian officials says 29-year-old Faris al Riqib, shot in the abdomen by Israeli troops on Friday during a protest, succumbed to his wounds.
