GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- A Palestinian man on Monday died of wounds sustained in an Israeli strike that killed two of his relatives on the first day of Israel's military offensive on the Gaza Strip.
Ahmad Ali Masharawi sustained major burns when an Israeli missile hit his garden in Gaza City on Nov. 14. His infant nephew, 11-month-old, Omar Masharawi, was killed immediately, as was his pregnant sister-in-law Hiba Mashharawi Turk.
BBC correspondent Paul Danahar wrote
on Twitter that Ahmad Masharawi had been trying to carry Omar to safety when the house was hit engulfing them both in flames.
Omar's father and Ahmad's brother is BBC employee Jihad Masharawi, whose image cradling his dead son
became a symbol of the conflict.
