A young man has died of injuries he suffered when he was wounded by Israel’s occupation forces while taking part in a demonstration in the besieged Gaza Strip.
30-year-old Amer Manar al-Hajar, from the Saftawi area in the northern part of besieged Gaza, died of his wounds on the evening of Sunday January 19th.
Press sources report that he would have been shot and wounded in the very first Great Return March demonstration on March 30th 2018, but this is possibly wrong.
A social media post by a person calling himself a relative says that he died of his wounds suffered on “14/5”. The post includes a photograph of him not seen elsewhere.
This would have to mean the Nakba Day demonstration on May 14th 2018, which ended in a massacre committed by the Israeli occupation forces, with over 70 people now dead as a result. The Nakba Day demonstration in 2019 was on May 15th and closest Great Return March demonstrations in 2018 were on May 11th and 18th and in 2019 on May 10th and May 17th.
