GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian woman died Thursday morning of carbon monoxide poisoning in her house in Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip, medical officials said.

Medics told Ma’an that 36-year-old Fayzah Muammar was pronounced dead at Nasser Hospital in Kahn Younis. She died of carbon monoxide poisoning caused by a wood-burning stove in her house.

Separately, a fire broke in a house in Gaza City causing serious material damage.

Eyewitnesses said the family of Thiab al-Qassas used candles to light the house during a power cut. A candle fell over and ignited a large fire in the house. No injuries were reported.
