Fourteen Palestinians were injured, including a photojournalist, on Friday in the demonstrations near the Gaza borders.

Hundreds of Palestinians headed to the Gaza borders commemorating the anniversary of the 1976 war which ended with Israel occupying Jerusalem and the West Bank.

Gaza Ministry of Health boosted its capabilities preparing for the large demonstrations.

The ministry said that Israeli forces directly hit two ambulances by tear gas bombs.

Palestinians have been protesting in Gaza since March 30 in what has been known as the Great Return March.

So far, more than 100 Palestinians were killed, including two journalists and a paramedic, and thousands were injured.

More than 20 injured people were transferred earlier last month to the Jordan Medical City in Amman for treatment.

Protestors are mainly calling for ending the decade-long siege imposed on the coastal enclave, and for the right of return of the Palestinian refugees worldwide.
