Palestinian succumbs to wounds, Gaza death toll rises to 168

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian succumbed to his wounds on Monday that he had sustained on May 14th during "The Great March of Return" protests along the eastern borders of the besieged Gaza Strip.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza announced that WIssam Yousef Hijazi, 30, succumbed to his wounds sustained east of Khan Younis, south of the Gaza Strip.

The ministry confirmed that Hijazi was severely injured after he was shot by Israeli forces during his participation in the protests near the return camps along the eastern border.

This brings the total number of those killed in Gaza since March 30th to 168 Palestinians killed.

Additionally, the ministry released new statistics which showed that over 18,000 Palestinians were injured by Israeli forces during the marches.

"The Great March of Return" protests were launched by thousands of Palestinian civilians in Gaza -- which has suffered from a decade-long Israeli siege -- who took to the borders to demand their right of return as refugees to their original homelands, now in present-day Israel.

Israel has come under widespread international condemnation for its use of excessive force and live ammunition against unarmed protesters.
