Palestinian succumbs to wounds sustained in Gaza night protests

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A 20-year-old Palestinian succumbed to his wounds, on Saturday morning, that he had sustained during Friday night protests, also known as “Night Confusion,” east of Gaza City in the central besieged Gaza Strip.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health confirmed, in a statement, that Muhammad Jihad Saad, 20, was injured in the head with bullet shrapnel, and transferred to the al-Shifa Hospital for medical treatment, where he was pronounced dead on Saturday morning.

At least 11 Palestinians were injured alongside the eastern border fence of the Gaza Strip during "Night Confusion" protests.

For several weeks, hundreds of Palestinian protesters, have been organizing, as well as participating in night protests, during which they set tires on fire and chant slogans through loud speakers, while marching towards the border with Israel. These protesters are also known as the "Night Confusion" unit.

Additionally, the ministry declared that all emergency departments of the Gaza Strip are prepared for Land Day protests across the besieged enclave as it also marks the 1 year anniversary for "The Great March of Return" protests that launched on March 30th, 2018 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.
