GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian child on Saturday succumbed to wounds received during an Israeli bombing three days before.

Spokesman for the Gaza Ministry of Health Ashraf al-Qidra said that seven-year-old Ali Abd al-Latif al-Awour was injured during an Israeli strike of the al-Sudaniya region in the northern Gaza Strip on Wednesday.

The strike targeted a Palestinian affiliated with a militant group who was passing through the area on a motorcycle.

The victim was Muhammad Ahmad al-Awour, 30, who was affiliated with the An-Nasser Salah al-Din Brigades, the military wing of the Popular Resistance Committees.

Israel said the strike came in response to rocket fire from the Strip and that the victim was affiliated with "international jihad," but al-Awour's family said he had gone out to get food for dinner when he was killed.

Seven-year-old Ali was walking by when the strike hit.

Israel has killed over 60 Palestinians since last July and injured more than a thousand in the occupied West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza Strip.
