Man dies of wounds sustained in Gaza war

Dec. 9, 2012 6:23 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 11, 2012 1:06 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A man died on Sunday from wounds sustained in Israel's eight day assault on the Gaza Strip in November, medics said.

Zeidan al-Nahhal, 48, died in an Egyptian hospital on Sunday after being injured in Israel's week-long bombardment of Gaza, which began after the targeted assassination of Hamas military commander Ahmed al-Jaabari on Nov. 14.

Several people have died from their injuries since a ceasefire agreement was signed on Nov. 21 to end violence in Gaza.

Israel's assault on the coastal enclave killed at least 170 people and wounded over 1,000.

Six Israelis were also killed in the violence.

The week-long bombardment severely damaged civilian infrastructure in the coastal enclave, which had yet to recover from Israel's Operation Cast Lead, a three week offensive in 2008-09 which left nearly 1,400 Palestinians dead, including 300 children.
