Palestinian man dies of wounds sustained during latest Israeli onslaught on Gaza Strip

Gaza /PNN /

A Palestinian man seriously injured in the latest Israeli aggression on the besieged Gaza Strip has died of his wounds, raising the death toll from the three-day-long bloody assaults on the impoverished coastal sliver to at least 47, including 16 children and four women.

Palestinian medical sources identified the man as Ibrahim Shehda Abu Salah.

The sources added that the 41-year-old was seriously injured last Saturday, when Israeli military forces fired missiles and shells at a residential neighborhood in Beit Hanoun city, which lies on the northeast edge of the Gaza Strip, leaving several Palestinians dead and dozens of others wounded.

On Monday, the Ministry of Health in the Gaza Strip announced in a statement that a young girl had succumbed to serious wounds sustained in Israeli attacks.

The ministry said the 10-year-old child, identified as Hanin Abu Qayda, was critically injured on August 6, when the Israeli army targeted a civilian car in the Bedouin village of Umm al-Nasr.

Her grandmother, Na’ama Mohammad Abu Qayda, 62, was instantly killed in the strike, while seven members of her family were wounded.
