GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A man from Khan Younis died on Wednesday from wounds sustained in Israel's assault on Gaza in November, a medical official said.

Ashraf al-Qidra told Ma'an that Abdullah Mahmoud Asqoul, 24, was seriously wounded in his head, stomach and chest during Israel's bombardment of the coastal territory and was taken to Egypt for treatment.

He died at his home in Gaza after returning several days ago.

Several people have died from their injuries since a ceasefire agreement was signed on Nov. 21 to end violence in Gaza.

Israel's assault on the coastal enclave killed at least 170 Palestinians and wounded over 1,000.

Six Israelis were also killed in the violence.

The week-long bombardment severely damaged civilian infrastructure in the coastal enclave, which had yet to recover from Israel's Operation Cast Lead, a three week offensive in 2008-09 which left nearly 1,400 Palestinians dead, including 300 children.
