The Palestinian Health Ministry has reported, on Monday, October 7th, 2019, that a young man who was shot and seriously injured by Israeli army fire in northern Gaza, has died from his wounds.
The Health Ministry stated that the young man, Fadi Osama Ramadan Hijazi, 21, was seriously injured in April of this year, during the Great Return March processions, east of Jabalia, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.
Following his injury, on April 19th, 2019, Palestinian medics rushed him to the Indonesian Hospital in Beit Lahia, but he remained in a very critical condition until he succumbed to his wounds.
The Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) issued a statement mourning the slain Palestinian and said that he was one of its members.
The DFLP denounced the escalating Israeli violations against the Palestinians, especially in the besieged Gaza Strip, and the deliberate use of live fire against the protesters along the perimeter fence in the coastal region.
It is worth mentioning that the Palestinian was first shot on February 22nd, 2019, while participating in the Great Return March processions, east of Jabalia, and after recovering, he was shot again on April 19th and remained in a critical condition until he succumbed to his wounds.
Israeli soldiers have killed 326 Palestinians, including medics and journalists, since the Great Return March processions started in the Gaza Strip, on Palestinian Land Day, March 30th, 2018. The army is holding the corpses of 16 of them and refusing to transfer them back to the families for burial.
