GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- A member of Hamas' military wing died Thursday from wounds sustained during Israel's latest assault on the Gaza Strip, the group said.
The al-Qassam Brigades announced the death of Hosam al-Hums, from Rafah, and said he was being treated in Egypt for serious injuries sustained in an Israeli airstrike.
Several people have died from their injuries since a ceasefire agreement was signed last Wednesday to end the bombardment of Gaza.
Mahmoud Sami Shaat, 21, died Wednesday, also during treatment in Egypt, after he was seriously wounded by shrapnel in an Israeli airstrike on Rafah.
