On March 30, Palestinians on the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip started a protest dubbed The Great Return March, which is expected to continue until May 15.
Ibrahim Ghunaim, who is better known as MC Gaza, made a music video dedicated to Gazan journalist Yasser Murtaja, who was also his friend. He sings in the video: “Don’t mourn the martyr, it is time for the flowers to be picked.”
“Israel thought if they kill us, they would end our existence … We will return, even if it takes us decades, we will return,” MC Gaza continues.
