Several Palestinians were killed on Friday during clashes with Israeli security forces along the Gaza Strip border during massive protests orchestrated by militant group Hamas.

The Palestinian Health Ministry have pegged a number of 10 dead and over 500 injured during rallies.

Israeli officials have warned Palestinian protestors at five encampments spread along the border to leave, expressing fears that there may be a hidden terrorist operation within the rallies.

The protests had begun as mass sit-ins organized by Gaza’s Islamic militant Hamas rulers, but quickly spun out of control, reported The Associated Press.

The rallies, hailed as part of the “March of Return”, have included some 20,000 Gaza Strip residents.
