Palestinian Ma'an News Agency reported that Mohammad Abduil-Javad succumbed to his wounds on Tuesday.

He was shot in the leg by Israeli forces during a "Great March of Return" protest rally east of Rafah City on April 24.

Meanwhile, an Israeli settler ran over and killed a Palestinian man in the northwestern part of the occupied West Bank.

Palestinian media say that the 45-year- old victim, identified as Abdul Hafiz Barham, was struck east of Qalqilya on Tuesday.

According to witnesses, the Palestinian man was taken to a hospital in Nablus, where he succumbed to his injuries.

Last month, a Palestinian female teacher also died in a run-over attack by an Israeli near the city of Bethlehem.

There have been a series of "hit-and-run" incidents targeting Palestinians in different parts of the West Bank over the past years, with most of them going uninvestigated by Israeli authorities.
