Since 30 March 2018, the #Gaza Strip has witnessed a significant increase in #Palestinian casualties in the context of mass demonstrations and other activities along Israel’s perimeter fence with Gaza, taking place as part of the "Great March of Return", as well as during hostilities and access related incidents.

The large number of casualties among unarmed Palestinian demonstrators, including a high percentage of demonstrators hit by live ammunition, has raised concerns about excessive use of force by Israeli troops.
