Gaza (QNN)- New statistics on the numbers of martyrs and wounded Palestinians since the start of the Great Return March have been issued by the Palestinian Ministry of Health on Friday.
Spokesperson of the ministry Ashraf Al Qudrah said that the Palestinian medical teams documented 271 cases of killed and 16656 injured protesters throughout all Gaza hospitals since the start of the Great Return March.
Al Qudrah stressed that all medical teams and paramedics will continue to fulfill their humanitarian mission during the 54th week of the Great Return March protests in Gaza.
All segments of Palestinians have been participating in the peaceful protests since March 30, 2018 demanding their right to return to their occupied lands and an end of the siege on the Gaza strip. Yet, Israel continues to use lethal power against the unarmed protesters, defying international laws and recommendations.
