Gazan child dies of wounds from 2014 Israeli war03 November 2018

Some 2323 Palestinians were killed and around 11,000 others injured in the Israeli assault.

A Palestinian minor on Saturday succumbed to wounds he sustained during the 2014 deadly Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip, according to the Health Ministry. 

Mohammed Nasser al-Rifi, 14, was seriously injured in an Israeli attack on his home in Al-Tuffah neighborhood, east of Gaza City, in 2014. 

“He died of his wounds on Saturday at Al-Wafa hospital in Gaza,” ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra said in a statement. 

The minor’s father, brother and four relatives had died in the Israeli attack. 

In July 2014, the Israeli army launched a 51-day offensive on the Gaza Strip on the pretext of halting rocket fire from the Palestinian territory. 

A total of 2323 Palestinians were martyred and around 11,000 others injured in the assault, according to figures released by the Palestinian Health Ministry. 

The Gaza Strip has groaned under a crippling Israeli blockade since 2006 that has gutted the territory’s economy and deprived its two million inhabitants of many staple commodities.
