GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A teenager in Gaza died on Monday after being seriously injured in an Israeli airstrike on Beit Lahiya 10 days earlier, medics said.

Haitham Marouf, 14, died in the intensive care unit of Ash-Shifa hospital in Gaza City, medical officials said.

Shortly after midnight on Aug. 19, Israeli warplanes launched a series of raids targeting Gaza City, the northern towns of Beit Hanoun and Beit Lahiya, and Khan Younis in the south.

The raids followed a shooting attack in Eilat in which eight Israelis were killed. Israel blamed a Gaza-based militant group the Popular Resistance Committee and bombarded the Gaza Strip killing 13 people and injuring dozens more over four days.
