Palestinian dies of wounds sustained in Gaza offensive

Sept. 2, 2014 12:56 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 3, 2014 3:39 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian man early Tuesday succumbed to wounds sustained during Israel's offensive on Gaza, family members told Ma'an.

Basim Ajjur, 55, died in a hospital in Jerusalem, bringing the death toll from the Israeli assault to 2,159.

Ajjur was transferred to the hospital after being critically injured approximately two weeks ago, when an Israeli airstrike hit his home near the al-Zahra school in central Gaza City, a relative told Ma'an.

His 20-year-old son Saad was killed in the same airstrike, which injured a number of Palestinians from the same family.

At least six Palestinians have died of their wounds since the announcement of a long-term ceasefire in Gaza on Aug. 26. Over 11,000 Palestinians sustained injuries in Israeli attacks throughout the seven-week assault.
