A Palestinian citizen died at dawn Monday of wounds he sustained after being shot by the Israeli occupation forces on the first Friday of the Great March of Return.
Spokesman for Gaza’s Ministry of Health Ashraf al-Qedra said that Marwan Qdeih, 45, suffered from a serious injury after he was shot on 30th March when the Israeli army used lethal force to quell the Great March of Return east of Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip.
In a related context, medical sources told the PIC reporter that 12 Palestinians were injured by Israeli gunfire on Sunday while taking part in the Return protests.
With Qdeih’s death, the number of Palestinians killed since the launch of the Great March of Return has increased to 32, while over 2,850 have been injured.
The Great March of Return is a major popular event where Palestinians protest peacefully along Gaza’s eastern border with the 1948 occupied Palestinian territories to call for enforcing the UN resolutions related to the Palestinian refugees issue, especially Resolution 194 which provides for return or compensation.
