They added that he suffered various complications since then, and developed tumors that eventually led to his death, especially amidst the lack of medical supplies in the besieged and impoverished Gaza Strip.

He was shot with an expanding bullet, and underwent several surgeries, but also suffered several infections in the wound area, eventually resulting in cancer.

Israeli soldiers have killed 307 Palestinians, including medics and journalists, and injured more than 29000, since the Great Return March procession started in the Gaza Strip, on Palestinian land Day, March 30th, 2018.

Abdullah Jom’a Abdul-‘Al

May 10, 2019: Abdullah Jom’a Abdul-‘Al, 24, was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers while participating in the non-violent Great Return March protests on the Gaza-Israel border.

The Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza has confirmed that the soldiers killed Abdullah, after shooting him in the pelvis, east of Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

His death came when Israeli soldiers attacked, Friday, the weekly Great Return March processions on Palestinian lands along the eastern areas of the Gaza Strip, killing Abdullah and wounding 30, including four children, and one medic who was shot in the head while providing treatment to wounded Palestinians.

The medic, identified as Mohammad Abu T’eima,  was shot as he, and several other medics, were providing treatment to wounded protesters, who were shot by the soldiers on Palestinian lands, east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the coastal region.

Eyewitnesses said the soldiers engaged in the excessive use of force against the protesters by firing a barrage of live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets and high-velocity  gas bombs at them.
