SCRIPT
Thousands of Palestinians marched near the Gaza-Israel border on Friday, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the arson attack on al-Aqsa mosque.
Wounded protesters could be seen carried away on stretchers by fellow marches and paramedics in footage, while others used slingshots to launch projectiles at members of the Israel military.
The protest comes as part of the 'Great March of Return' protests which started in March 2018 as a non-violent protest campaign which calls for the Palestinian people's right to return to their homes lost to Israeli forces in 1948.
