A 14-year-old Palestinian teenager died on Monday, January 14, from wounds sustained in last Friday’s “Great March of Return” border protests, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry. Palestinian media on Monday circulated a photograph of the slain teen, Abdel Mohammed Saleh.
On Sunday, January 13, Anwar Qudaih, 33, succumbed to critical wounds he sustained a few weeks ago after being shot by Israeli forces as he took part in that week’s “Great March of Return” protests near the eastern border of Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip.
On Saturday afternoon, January 12, Palestinian crowds accompanied the body of Communist activist Amal Mustafa al-Taramsi, 43, who was shot and killed by Israeli forces during protests along the eastern border of the besieged Gaza Strip a day earlier. The funeral procession for al-Taramsi set out from the Shifa Hospital in Gaza City and headed towards the dead woman’s home in the Sheikh Radwan neighborhood before her burial in the local cemetery.
More than 25 Palestinians were wounded by live ammunition and rubber-coated steel bullets during last Friday’s “Great March of Return” protests while dozens of others suffered from the inhalation of tear-gas. Two journalists and a paramedic were among those injured and a Palestinian ambulance was also targeted and hit by Israeli bullets.
