GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Three Palestinians died on Thursday evening as a result of injuries they sustained earlier during the Israeli assault, the Palestinian Ministry of Health said.

Health ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra named two of the dead as Jihad Ali Abu Zeid, 61, and Mahdheyah al-Mebayyed, 91, both of whom died as a result of injuries sustained during the Israeli offensive on the Shujaiyya neighborhood of Gaza City, which left more than 100 dead in less then 48 hours.

The third deceased Palestinian man was identified as Ibrahim Ismail Abu Odeh, 64, from Beit Hanoun.

The Palestinian death toll during the five-week Israeli assault now stands at 1,973, with more than 10,000 others injured.
