Hundreds of people in the Israeli capital Tel Aviv in April 1, protested Israeli forces' violence against Palestinian civilians in March 30, according to Israeli radio, as violence on the Gaza border continues.

The mostly leftist Israeli protesters chanted slogans against the Israeli army and called for an end to the violence on Palestinian civilians as well as a political solution and resumption of the peace process.

Meanwhile, 11 more Palestinians were injured by Israeli gunfire Sunday near the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.

On Saturday, Tamar Zandberg, head of the left-wing Meretz party, called on Israeli authorities to open an investigation into the violence that broke out along the Gaza border fence.

Israeli forces' attacks on the demonstrators left 18 Palestinians martyred and nearly 1,500 people injured.

The rallies were endorsed by virtually all Palestinian political factions, which repeatedly stressed the event's peaceful nature.
