Today, Palestinians mourned the funeral of 21-year-old Razan al-Najjar, carrying her body with on top her medic vest soaked in blood, in the city of Khan Yunis, Gaza Strip.

Razan al-Najjar was a medic who was shot the day before by an Israeli sniper as she was attempted to reach the injured during the protest at the Gaza fence, near Khuza’a.

According to health ministry spokesman, Najjar was a volunteer with the ministry, wearing the white uniform of a medic when she was shot in the chest.

Thousands of Palestinians protested at several locations along the Gaza fence on Friday, calling for their right of return and the end of the siege on Gaza. Since the beginning of the Great Return March, a wave of protests started on Land Day and officially finished on Nakba Day, but continued afterwards, 123 protesters were killed by the Israeli army, and thousands were injured by live ammunition.
