BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- A Palestinian man succumbed to wounds sustained during a vehicular accident four months earlier, relatives told Ma’an.

Palestinian worker Imad Ahmad Abu Eid al-Ayyayda, 32, from the southern occupied West Bank village of al-Shuyukh, died on Sunday in the Beilinson Hospital in the Israeli city of Petah Tikva, where he had been receiving medical care since the accident, his uncle said.

Al-Ayyayda was injured while working in Israel, the uncle said, although no further details were provided regarding the nature of the accident.

Israel has one of the highest rates of construction site accidents in the world, according to Israeli newspaper Haaretz, with 480 people killed in construction accidents between 2000 and 2015.

Tens of thousands of Palestinian workers are forced to seek a living by working inside Israel and illegal Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank due to crippling unemployment in the West Bank, as the growth of an independent Palestinian economy has been stifled under the ongoing Israeli military occupation, according rights groups.
