A Palestinian man who was shot by Israeli forces during the Great March of Return protest in May – on the besieged Gaza Strip’s border with Gaza – succumbed to his wounds on Monday, medical sources have said.

Wissam Yousef Hijazi, 30, was critically injured by Israeli forces on May 14, during the border crossing protests east of Khan Younis.

He continued receiving treatment at the hospital up until the gunshot wounds finally resulted in his death.

More than 160 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire since the protests began.
