Hundreds of Palestinians gathered on Saturday for the funeral of a child killed by Israeli forces at the Great March of Return protest near the perimeter fence on Friday.
The child Yousef Saied Hussein Eldaia, 15 years-old, succumbed to injuries he sustained by the Israeli occupation snipers on the 48th Friday of the peaceful Great March of Return, east of Gaza Strip, the Ministry reported.
Thousands of Palestinians marched along the border fence separating Gaza and the Palestinian territories occupied since 1948 on the 48th Friday of the Great March of Return.
Dozens of Palestinians were shot and wounded by the Israeli occupation forces “IOF”, using live bullets, while taking part in the Great March of Return along the Gaza separation fence on Friday.
The Ministry of Health spokesman said that 41 Palestinians were injured with live ammunition and dozens of others suffocated by tear gas.
Since the demonstrations have begun, Israel used deadly force against the peaceful protesters, killed more than 260, and injured more than 27,000 others, 500 of whom are in critical condition.
