GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian woman died on Monday from wounds sustained in Israel's war on the Gaza Strip, medics said.

Sabah al-Sakafi, in her 30s, was wounded in an Israeli airstrike on the Shujaiya neighborhood of Gaza City during the eight-day war that ended Wednesday with a ceasefire.

She was transferred to an Egyptian hospital where she died on Monday, medics told Ma'an.

Also Monday, Ahmad Ali Masharawi died of wounds sustained in an Israeli strike that killed two of his relatives on the first day of Israel's military offensive on the Gaza Strip.

Masharawi sustained major burns when an Israeli missile hit his garden in Gaza City on Nov. 14, killing 11-month-old Omar and 19-year-old Hiba, who was pregnant with twins.

BBC correspondent Paul Danahar wrote on Twitter that Ahmad Masharawi had been trying to carry Omar to safety when the house was hit engulfing them both in flames.

Ahmad's brother,and Omar's father, is BBC employee Jihad Masharawi, whose image cradling his dead son became a symbol of the conflict.
