Palestinian succumbs to wounds sustained during Gaza protests

Sept. 7, 2018 1:02 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 9, 2018 9:52 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A 19-year-old Palestinian succumbed to his wounds, on Friday morning, that he had sustained several weeks ago during "The Great March of Return" protests in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Medical sources identified the Palestinian as Amjad Fayez Hamduna, 19, and confirmed that he had succumbed to his wounds.

Hamduna was wounded by Israeli forces' live fire during protests on July 14th in northern Gaza.

Medical reports confirmed that Hamduna was in serious condition when transferred to the hospital.

According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, the death toll in the Gaza Strip rises to 174 Palestinians killed since the start of "The Great March of Return" on March 30th, and more than 18,000 Palestinians wounded.

Rights groups condemned Israel's excessive use of force against protesters, who were participating in "The Great March of Return," a weeks-long planned protest during which Gazans have demanded their right to return to their original homelands inside present day Israel.
