GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian from the besieged Gaza Strip succumbed, on Friday evening, to wounds he had sustained by Israeli live ammunition during protests at the eastern borders of Rafah earlier.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza confirmed that Rami Wael Ishaq Qahman, 28, succumbed to his wounds at the European Hospital.

Qahman had arrived to the hospital on Friday afternoon with critical injuries in the neck.

The ministry had confirmed, on Friday afternoon, that 37 Palestinians were injured with live bullets as Israeli forces suppressed protesters at the eastern borders of the Gaza Strip.

Qahman's death raises the number of Palestinians killed since the beginning of "The Great March of Return" to 221 killed Palestinians.

More than 24,000 Palestinians have been injured since the protests were launched on March 30th, 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.
