Gaza groups announce border protests will take place less frequently in 2020

The committee responsible for organizing weekly protests in the border region between Israel and the Gaza Strip announces that demonstrations will take place less frequently in 2020.

The High Commission for the March of Return and Breaking the Siege, which includes representatives of Gaza-based terror groups and political factions, says in a statement that protests would occur on “a monthly basis as well as whenever we need masses to gather and during prominent national occasions,” starting on March 30, 2020.

“We, in the High Commission for the March of Return and Breaking the Siege, are making this decision and embodying national responsibility,” the statement says. “Through this [decision], we are affirming the bold and responsible leadership role of the commission.”
