Israeli military forces have shot dead one Palestinian and injured ten others in the Gaza Strip as thousands of Palestinians staged protests to mark the anniversary of “Nakba Day.”

Israeli troops fired tank shells near protest march in Gaza and killed a 17-year-old Palestinian and wounded ten others, a Press TV correspondent reported Sunday.

In another incident, five Palestinians were also injured in the West Bank town of Ramallah.

Meanwhile, clashes erupted between Palestinian demonstrators and Israeli forces on Qalandia checkpoint between Ramallah and al-Quds (Jerusalem).

Nakba Day, or the day of catastrophe, marks the 63rd anniversary of the occupation of Palestine by the Israeli army and the expulsion of more than 700,000 Palestinians from their land in 1948.

The Israeli soldiers wiped nearly 500 Palestinian villages and towns off the map during the offensive, leaving the Palestinian refugees dreaming of an eventual return to their homeland more than six decades later.
