Gaza (UNA-OIC) – A Palestinian youth, from Jabalia camp, succumbed Wednesday morning to gunshot injuries he sustained during protests along Gaza’s eastern border.
WAFA correspondent quoted medical sources at al-Shifa Hospital as confirming that Osama Khaled D‘aig succumbed to the wounds he sustained from Israeli military gunfire while participating in protests east of Gaza City last Saturday.
On Saturday, Israeli forces cracked down protests marking the 52nd anniversary of burning Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, injuring 41 protestors with live ammunition, including 15 children.
The protests were also organized to draw attention to the Israeli 14-year blockade on the Gaza Strip and Israel’s obstruction of Gaza reconstruction.
