Israeli forces have resorted to spraying tear gas grenades on Palestinian protesters during a rally along the e Israel border with Gaza, demanding the right to return to their homeland.

The Israel  Defense Forces (IDF) ordered the use of tear gas-deploying drones to dire onto huge crowds of Palestinian protesters along the Israel-Gaza border area Friday. 

At least 12 Palestinians have been killed and up to 500 injured in the clashes according to Reuters. The IDF also fired lives rounded and rubber-coated steel pellets on crowds demonstrating at the #GreatReturn.

RT reports: "First thing, they [IDF] used tear gas that they fired using vehicle-mounted guns. And then, as the crowds increased, they brought drones to fire tear gas canisters," an eyewitness, who chose to remain anonymous, told RT.com.

Demonstrators rolled burning tires and hurled stones at the border fence area, prompting the IDF to declare the area a "closed military zone" while accusing "the Hamas terror organization" of endangering the lives of Gaza civilians.

Tens of thousands of demonstrators called for the right of return for refugees in what is now Israeli territory. The protests and clashes took place in at least six locations along the roughly 65km (40-mile) border fence.

#GreatReturn is coinciding with the Jewish holiday of Passover and it’s feared the demonstrations will serve to increase tensions in the already-volatile region. Palestinians have vowed to continue their protest for six weeks.
