Palestinian teen succumbs to wounds in Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian youth succumbed on Saturday morning to wounds he had sustained during protests at the eastern borders of the besieged Gaza Strip on Friday.

Locals confirmed that Mumen Fathi al-Hims, 18, succumbed to wounds he had sustained by an explosive bullet in the stomach in the return camp of eastern Rafah on Friday.

Al-Hims was transferred to the European hospital following his injury, where he was pronounced dead on Saturday.

According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza, al-Hims’ death brings the death toll of Palestinians killed by Israeli forces since March 30th, when the "Great March of Return" started, to 155.

Meanwhile, Israeli forces opened live fire at a group of Palestinians near the return camp of Khuzaa in eastern Khan Younis in the southern besieged Gaza Strip.

A Ma'an reporter said that an 11-year-old Palestinian boy was injured with a live bullet in the leg and was transferred to the Nasser Hospital for treatment.

Two other Palestinians were killed, including 14-year-old boy, and at least 246 were injured during protests in Friday.

The "Great March of Return" protests were launched by thousands of Palestinian civilians in Gaza -- which has suffered from a decade-long Israeli siege -- who took to the borders to demand their right of return as refugees to their original homelands, now in present-day Israel.

Israel has come under widespread international condemnation for its use of excessive force and live ammunition against unarmed protesters.
