Palestinian teen succumbs to Israeli soldiers inflicted injury – hlt source

GAZA, A Palestinian teen, taking part in the Gaza Strip’s “Great March of Return”, succumbed to a head injury caused by Israeli soldiers, said a Health Ministry source Saturday.

Palestinian Health Ministry spokesman Ashraf Al-Qadra said that Azzam Riyadh, 15, died due to an injury sustained yesterday.

Al-Qadra revealed that it was very hard to deal with emergencies especially in the Gaza Strip, which is witnessing a 50 percent shortage in medical supplies as a result of over decade of Israeli blockade.

In the Great March of Return, some 7,000 Palestinians were injured because of the Israeli military’s violent disruption.

A number of 44 people were killed since the Great March of Return began last month.
