A 16-year-old Palestinian yesterday succumbed to wounds he sustained during the Great March of Return protests on May 14 in the besieged Gaza Strip.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza confirmed that Mahmoud Majed Al-Gharableh died as a result of injuries he sustained after being shot by Israeli live fire during protests.
Since March 30, thousands of Palestinians have come out to peacefully protest against Israel’s 11-year siege of the enclave and demanding their right to return to their ancestral homes.
Israeli occupation forces met the demonstrators with live fire and tear gas which injured more than 15,000 people and killed nearly 140 people.
On May 14, the US inaugurated its embassy in occupied Jerusalem angering Palestinians and going against international law and norms.
The move was condemned by the UN, EU and a number of international organizations.
