The number of martyrs since the beginning of the “Great Return March” on the eastern border of the Gaza Strip has risen to 55 citizens, including 7 children, in addition to the injury of about 9000 others by the Israeli occupation forces.
Crowds of mourners carried the body of 15-year-old Palestinian Jamal Afanah through the streets of Rafah on Sunday.
Images shows the crowds as they chant and carry Afanah through the Rafah streets and into homes where mourners kissed the boy and paid their respects.
Maher Yaqoub, an uncle of the Afanah, stated: “We will continue not only tomorrow or after tomorrow but until we get all our rights, our land and our prisoners.”
The “Great March of Return” protests will continue until the 70th anniversary of the occupation of Palestine by Israeli regime in May 25th.
