Through black smoke clouds in the background that resulted from burning tires on the border siege, a group of Palestinian youth joined young woman to dance dabke on the Gaza border as part of the “Great Return March” that is being held for more than two months, since May 30.
Despite the danger of being shot by Israeli snipers, the youth danced dabke to the melodies of a Palestinian traditional song while wearing white Kofeyyes and the swinging ropes in their hands in an explicit way to approve their peaceful protests.
However, protesting peacefully without any kind of weapons did not save Gazans from being shot and killed by the Israeli snipers. As for the 14th consecutive week, two Palestinians were killed on Friday and more than 400 were injured bringing the total number of deaths to 135 and more than 15,000 injured, according to the Ministry of Health in Gaza.
