A 16-year-old Palestinian succumbed on Wednesday evening to wounds he sustained during his participation in the Great March of Return protests on 14 May in the besieged Gaza Strip.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza confirmed that Mahmoud Majed Al-Gharableh died as a result of injuries he sustained after being shot by Israeli live fire during protests.

His death brings the total number of those killed during the “reat March of Return protests to 136 since 30 March.

Since 30 March, thousands of Palestinians have come out to peacefully protest against Israel’s 11-year siege of the enclave and demanding their right to return to their ancestral homes.

Israeli occupation forces met the demonstrators with live fire and tear gas which injured more than 15,000 people.

On 14 May, the US inaugurated its embassy in occupied Jerusalem angering Palestinians and going against international law and norms.

The move was condemned by the UN, EU and a number of international organisations.
