Palestinian Succumbs to Wounds Sustained in Gaza Border Protests

GAZA – A young Palestinian man died on Thursday from a gunshot wound to the head he sustained from Israeli fire during recent Gaza-Israel border protests, according to the spokesman for the Gaza Health Ministry.

Ashraf al-Qedra said the 21-year-old Ahmed al-Assi was shot by the Israel forces in the eastern part of the southern Gaza city of Khan Younis on Friday, June 8.

The death of al-Assi has raised the death toll to 126 Palestinians killed by Israeli fire since weekly border protests started on March 30, according to statistics released by the Gaza Health Ministry.

The Great March of Return protests were calling for the right of Palestinian refugees and their descendants, who according to the United Nations make up around two-thirds of Gaza’s population, to return to their homeland inside what is now Israel.

Israel accuses the Islamist Hamas movement, which has been controlling the coastal enclave since 2007, of using the protests as a cover to damage the border fence, infiltrate the Israeli territory and launch attacks.
