Gazans bid farewell to 116th martyr of Return March

Gaza,(DRAH.ps)-- Hundreds of Palestinians marched Saturday afternoon in the funeral of Husein Abu Eweida who died on Friday from wounds he sustained after being shot during the Great Return March protests near Gaza's eastern border fence.

 The marchers performed Janazah (funeral) prayer in al-Sha'af neighborhood east of Gaza before Abu Eweida was buried in the city's cemetery.

 Gaza's Ministry of Health announced the death of Abu Eweida, 41, in a brief statement at dawn Saturday.

 Abu Eweida's death raised the number of the Palestinian protesters killed by Israeli gunfire since the start of the Great Return March protests in Gaza on 30th March to 116.
