GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, announced on Thursday that one of its fighters in Gaza had succumbed to wounds he sustained more than a year earlier when he was shot by Israeli forces.

The group said in statement that 19-year-old Nael Suleiman Salah had been injured by Israeli fire north of the Gaza town of Beit Lahiya on May 8, 2015.

Ma’an reported at the time that a Palestinian teenager was in a critical condition after having been shot in the head.

An Israeli army spokeswoman told Ma’an at the time that Israeli forces had fired at a group of Palestinians near the border fence between Israel and the besieged Gaza Strip, and had hit the "main instigator" of the group. Asked what he had been instigating, she said the group had been "attempting to breach the security fence."
