DEIR AL-BALAH, Tuesday, March 12, 2019 (WAFA) - A Palestinian young man succumbed Monday evening of wounds he had sustained from Israeli gunfire earlier this month to the east of al-Bureij refugee camp in the central besieged Gaza Strip.

WAFA correspondent reported medical sources confirming that Musa Mohammad Musa, 23, a resident of the central Gaza Strip town of Deir al-Balah, succumbed to his injuries he sustained after being shot by Israeli forces during a protest to the east of al-Breij on March 1st.

Musa was the second Palestinian to succumb to his wounds during the last few days.
