Gazan youth dies after work accident, man commits suicide in Gaza

GAZA (Ma’an) -- A 20 year-old Palestinian died on Thursday, succumbing to wounds he sustained during a construction accident one week earlier in the central Gaza Strip, according to locals, while a 37-year-old committed suicide in the city of Jabaliya. 

Muhammad Najib Wishah, a resident of the Bureij refugee camp, was accidentally electrocuted last week while working at a construction site, along with another worker. The identity and condition of the second injured worker remained unknown. 

Meanwhile, a 37-year-old Palestinian committed suicide on Thursday in the city of Jabaliya in the northern Gaza Strip.

Palestinian police spokesperson in the Gaza Strip Ayman al-Batinji said that a Palestinian identified as “S.M.” was suffering from psychological issues that led him to commit suicide, adding that police found his body in the Abu Safiya district in Jabaliya.

He said that police had opened an investigation to uncover all circumstances of the incident.
