GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hundreds of Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip marched in the funeral of Palestinian teen, Karim Kallab, 19, who was killed by Israeli forces during the 26th "Great March of Return," on Friday.

Funeral processions took off from the al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City to Kallab's family home where his family and loved ones said their final farewells before heading to the Huthaifa mosque for funeral prayers and burial at the Sheikh Radwan cemetery.

Kallab was shot and killed by Israeli forces during protests at the eastern borders of Gaza City.

According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, Kallab's death raises the number of Palestinians killed since "The Great March of Return" began on March 30th to 184.

The ministry pointed out that some 20472 injuries have been recorded since the beginning of marches.
"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.
