Body recovered in Shujaiyya a month after 'massacre'

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Search teams on Sunday recovered a body from rubble in Gaza City, medical sources said Sunday.

The decayed body of 25-year-old Rami Ziad Quneita was found under the wreckage of his home in the Shujaiyya neighborhood, bringing the death toll from Israel's offensive on Gaza to 1,981, the sources said.

Medics say Quneita was likely killed on July 20, when the neighborhood came under heavy Israeli airstrikes and shelling in an onslaught Palestinians refer to as the Shujaiyya massacre.

An initial count put the number of Palestinians killed in the attack at 66, but several bodies have been found in the rubble of flattened buildings in the weeks that followed.
