Body of man killed in Gaza war found under rubble

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The body of an al-Qassam Brigades fighter killed during last summer's Israeli military offensive on Gaza was found beneath the rubble of a destroyed home in Gaza City on Wednesday.

Medical crews pulled the body of Mumen al-Batsh from under the rubble of a damaged home that workers were leveling in the al-Tuffah neighborhood.

Al-Batsh's home was one of 18,000 homes totally or severely destroyed during last year's deadly war.

Over 2,200 Palestinians, including at least 500 children, were killed in the conflict.

Reconstruction has been painfully slow, and the UN reported earlier this month that more than 100,000 Gazans remain homeless.
