Palestinian succumbs to wounds sustained in Gaza protests

Gaza,(DRAH.ps)-- A 22-year-old Palestinian succumbed to wounds, on Monday, that he had sustained about two weeks ago during “The Great March of Return” protests in the southern besieged Gaza Strip.

The spokesperson of the Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza, Ashraf al-Qidra, confirmed that Bassam Sami Safi, 22, succumbed to wounds he sustained two weeks ago, east of Khan Younis, in southern Gaza.

Al-Qidra pointed out that Safi was hit in the head with a tear-gas bomb, which resulted in critical wounds.

"The Great March of Return" protests were launched on March 30th 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.
