On Tuesday, East of the Al-Maghazi refugee camp in the central besieged Gaza Strip, a 78-year-old Palestinian was shot and killed by Israeli forces.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health announced this on Wednesday. The 78-year-old Palestinian, Ibrahim Ahmad Nassar al-Arouqi, was shot and killed with two live bullets fired by Israeli forces on Tuesday.
The ministry in Gaza confirmed the news after several hours of investigation which took place after al-Arouqi was shot on Tuesday. It was clearly determined that the bullet was from an Israeli.
According to the ministry in Gaza, since “The Great March of Return” began on March 30th, 193 Palestinians were killed, including 34 children, and 21,150 Palestinians were injured, including 4,200 children and 1,950 women, of whom 5,300 were injured due to Israeli live ammunition, while 464 of the injured were in serious condition.
“The Great March of Return” protests were launched by thousands of Palestinian civilians in Gaza who took to the borders to demand their right of return as refugees to their original homelands, now in present-day Israel.
