GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A nine-year-old boy died in Gaza on Monday from wounds sustained during Israel's recent offensive on the besieged enclave, medics said.

Ziad al-Rifi was injured on Aug. 21 in an Israeli airstrike near his family home in Gaza City which killed Tariq al-Rifi, 35, his sons Omar and Muhammad, and seven-year-old Abdullah Tariq al-Rifi.

The victims were watering trees in fields the family owned when they were targeted by two missiles.

Al-Rifi's death brought the total death during Israel's offensive to 2,158 Palestinians.
