Last week, the U.N. warned that 1,700 Palestinians with gunshot wounds to their limbs may have to undergo amputations because of a lack of funding for reconstruction surgery and other medical treatments. The U.N. reports 29,000 Palestinians have been injured while taking part in Great March of Return protests over the past year, of which 7,000 had gunshot wounds, mostly in the legs. $20 million is needed to make up for the shortfall in funding.
