Gaza woman succumbs to wounds at Jerusalem hospital

Sept. 4, 2014 8:34 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 5, 2014 10:25 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian woman from Gaza passed away at a Jerusalem hospital due to wounds sustained during the latest Israeli assault on Gaza.

Mariam Abu Amra, 23, died at al-Makased hospital in Jerusalem as a result of critical wounds she sustained in her chest in Deir al-Balah, sources at the hospital said.

Her body was taken to Gaza through Erez crossing in order to be buried.

Her death brings the total death toll in Gaza as a result of the more than 50-day Israeli assault to 2,154, as many Palestinians critically injured in the offensive have passed away.

More than 11,000 Palestinians were also injured.

The Gaza Ministry of Health said Thursday that 530 of the injured were transferred over the course of the conflict from Gaza to be treated in the West Bank, Egypt, Turkey, Germany, and Jordan.
