BETHLEHEM -- (Ma'an) Twenty-two wounded Palestinians from Gaza were transferred to Jordan on Tuesday to receive medical treatment in Jordanian hospitals.

Israeli media said the medical transfer was made upon the request of Jordan's King Abdullah in coordination with the Israeli officials.

The wounded were transferred through the Erez Crossing in northern Gaza with the help of Jordanian ambulances, and left through the Israeli-controlled Allenby Crossing in the occupied West Bank during the early hours of Wednesday morning.

The spokesperson of the ministry in Gaza, Ashraf al-Qidra, announced late Sunday that Israeli forces have killed 112 Palestinians and injured 13,190 more since the weeks-long massive unarmed “Great March of Return” demonstrations began.

Thirteen of the killed were children, under the age of 18, while 2,096 of the injuries are children and 1,029 are women.

Of the total injuries, 7,618 are related to live ammunition or rubber bullets, 5,572 are of tear-gas suffocation; 332 of the injuries are critical, 3,422 are moderate and 9,436 are light.
