Palestinian dies of wounds sustained during anti-Israel protests in Gaza

GAZA, Jan. 13 (Xinhua) — A Palestinian man has died of wounds he suffered two months ago after being shot by Israeli gunfire in southern Gaza Strip, Palestinian medics said on Sunday.

Ashraf al Qedra, spokesman for the Health Ministry in Gaza, said in a press statement that 33-year-old Anwar Qudeih died of his wounds on Saturday afternoon.

He added that Qudeih was shot in the abdomen and suffered critical wounds during a protest in east of the southern Gaza Strip city of Khan Younis, close to the border with Israel.

Al Qedra said that, since the beginning of the “Great March of Return” to protest against the Israeli siege in March last year, the Israeli army has killed 245 Palestinians and wounded more than 25,000 others.
