BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A young man in the city of Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip died of asphyxiation on Saturday, Gaza-based Palestinian News Agency Safa reported.

Hamza al-Amour, 22, died Saturday of asphyxiation from a fire he was kindling in his room to stay warm, according to medical sources at the European hospital.

The Gaza Strip is currently under a state of emergency due to severe weather conditions caused by a historic storm front moving south across the Levant.
