Two Palestinians died on Saturday from wounds they sustained after they were shot last Monday by Israeli occupying troops during protests in the Gaza Strip, the health ministry said.

The two men killed were 20-year-old Mohammed Mazen Alyan and 58-year-old Moein Abdel-Hamid Al-Saai.

The ministry said Alyan was wounded east of the Al-Bureij refugee camp, while other medical sources reported Al-Saai was wounded to the east of Gaza City.

The two men's deaths bring to 63 the total number of Palestinians killed by Israeli gunfire on Monday, when thousands of Palestinians protested as the US officially moved its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

This raises the number of Palestinian fatalities since the start of the Right of Return marches in Gaza last March to 108.

Thousands of Palestinians have been injured by Israeli gunfire and teargas during the peaceful marches.

On Friday, the UNHRC opened a probe into Israel's use of live bullets against Palestinians.

Gaza, home to 1.8 million Palestinians, has been under an all-out Israeli siege since 2007.
