CHILD WOUNDED BY ISRAELI OCCUPATION DIES IN BESIEGED GAZA

A Palestinian child has died from injuries he suffered when he was wounded by Israel’s occupation forces during the Great Return March last year.

Alaa Hani Hamada al-Abbasi died on the morning of Friday January 31st in a besieged Gaza Strip hospital, where he had remained in coma after being wounded on October 14th.4aba0048a97a8c37c2ae2c42a6864b02

He was taking part in the 78th Great Return March demonstration east of Khan Younis in the southern part of the besieged Gaza Strip when he was hit in head by a tear-gas grenade launched by Israeli occupation soldiers.

When he was injured, early reports gave his age as 13. Today reports give his age as 15. Based on the unity of reports today from different sources, we assume that his age at death was 15. He might have been 14 when wounded.

Alaa’s funeral took place on the Friday afternoon. He is the sixth Palestinian killed during 2020 by the Israeli occupation.EPnTwPbXsAEs5HY
