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

DEMONSTRATOR WOUNDED BY ISRAELI OCCUPATION DIES IN BESIEGED GAZA

EOq9cOoXsAAbVxkA young man has died of injuries he suffered when he was wounded by Israel’s occupation forces while taking part in a demonstration in the besieged Gaza Strip.

30-year-old Amer Manar al-Hajar, from the Saftawi area in the northern part of besieged Gaza, died of his wounds on the evening of Sunday January 19th.

Press sources report that he would have been shot and wounded in the very first Great Return March demonstration on March 30th 2018, but this is possibly wrong.

EOqz-ucWsAIyLXYA social media post by a person calling himself a relative says that he died of his wounds suffered on “14/5”. The post includes a photograph of him not seen elsewhere.

This would have to mean the Nakba Day demonstration on May 14th 2018, which ended in a massacre committed by the Israeli occupation forces, with over 70 people now dead as a result. The Nakba Day demonstration in 2019 was on May 15th and closest Great Return March demonstrations in 2018 were on May 11th and 18th and in 2019 on May 10th and May 17th.

84TH GREAT RETURN MARCH: “OUR MESSAGE IS THAT WE HAVE A RIGHT OF RESISTANCE”

On Friday December 13th over 2000 people took part on the Great Return March demonstrations on the border between the besieged Gaza Strip and ethnically cleansed Palestine 1948.

On this occasion official demonstrations did not take part in northern part of Gaza nor at Khan Younis in the south for political reasons as Hamas had arranged anniversary events for its own 32nd anniversary for Friday in northern and southern part of the tiny ELuoQATXkAEqCvLcoastal enclave. Still there was some participation at Khan Younis, where youths were captured on photograph throwing a Molotov cocktail at Israeli occupation forces’ vehicle.

This was the 84th Friday Great Return March protest, and like during the 83 earlier ones, it’s participants were attacked by Israel’s occupation forces.ELq8-jfXYAYqAeq

Israel’s occupation forces appear to have wounded at least 9 people, one of them seriously. 5 people were shot with live bullets and four were shot with rubber-coated steel bullets. The seriously wounded victim was shot in head.

Beyond dozens of people who suffered from ill effects of inhaling Israeli occupation forces’ tear gas, there are reports of people who would have been injured by being hit by occupation tear-gas canisters, but these reports are imprecise on the number of people who would have been wounded by them.

So far there has been no detailed reports from local human rights organizations in Gaza and the details of wounded are from media reports made on Friday itself and they are in some details contradictory. Our numbers are a likely combination based on them.ELrHNlHW4AAso8N

Mahal Mezher, a member of both the Central Committee of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine(PFLP) and Supreme National Authority for Return Marches commented the situation of the Great Return March movement on Friday:

“Our message is that we are still sticking to the continuation of these marches, and that we have right of resistance against the unjust policies towards our people…”

Mezher continued that the Supreme National Authority for Return Marches will meet to develop and plan for increase in activity in the coming weeks.
