Teen dies from Israeli gunfire wounds in Gaza


GAZA, Sunday, March 31, 2019 (WAFA) – A Palestinian teenager died from wounds sustained by Israeli gunfire during the protests at Gaza border yesterday on the 43rd anniversary of the Land Day, bringing the number of Palestinians killed by Israeli forces on the same day to four.

Belal Mahmoud Najjar, 17, was shot and critically injured by Israeli soldiers to the east of Khan Younis, in the south of the Gaza Strip, and was moved to Gaza European Hospital where he died of his wounds.

Thousands of Palestinians took to the Gaza-Israel border on Saturday to mark the Land Day and the first anniversary of the launch of the Great March of Return protests, which so far claimed the lives of more than 220 Palestinians and over 13,000 injured by Israel army gunfire since March 30, 2018.
