GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Two Palestinians from Gaza died on Thursday after succumbing to wounds they sustained during last week’s protests along the Israeli-imposed border fence in eastern Gaza.

The Ministry of Health in Gaza, said that Ahmed Ali Qatush, 23, succumbed to his wounds in the al-Shifa hospital in Gaza. He was shot by Israeli forces during protests east of the al-Bureij refugee camp in northern Gaza.

The second Palestinian was identified as Muhannad Baker Abu Tahoun, 21, who succumbed to a gunshot wound to the head.

Abu Tahoun had been transferred from Gaza to the southern occupied West Bank city of Hebron, where he was to receive treatment at the al-Ahli hospital.

He died within 24 hours of arriving to the hospital.

The ministry announced that about 50 Palestinians being treated in Gaza hospitals were in critical condition and on the verge of death.

According to the ministry, the total number of Palestinians who have been killed by Israeli forces since the “Great March of Return” began in Gaza on March 30th has reached 120, including 14 children.
