TEHRAN (Press Shia) – A Palestinian minor on Saturday succumbed to wounds he sustained during the 2014 Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip, a report said.
Mohammed Nasser al-Rifi, 14, was seriously injured in an Israeli attack on his home in Al-Tuffah neighborhood, east of Gaza City, in 2014.
"He died of his wounds on Saturday at Al-Wafa hospital in Gaza," the enclave’s health ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra said in a statement, Anadolu news agency reported.
The minor's father, brother and four relatives had died in the Israeli attack.
In early July 2014, Israel waged a war on the Gaza Strip. The 50-day military aggression, which ended on August 26, 2014, killed nearly 2,200 Palestinians, including 577 children. Over 11,100 others – including 3,374 children, 2,088 women and 410 elderly people – were also wounded in the war.
The Gaza Strip has been under an Israeli siege since June 2007. The blockade has caused a decline in the standards of living as well as unprecedented levels of unemployment and unrelenting poverty.
