GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- A Palestinian teenager died on Wednesday from wounds sustained during Israel's recent military assault on the Gaza Strip.
Ahmad bin Saed 19, died in an Egyptian hospital where he was being treated for shrapnel wounds from an Israeli airstrike.
The strike on al-Masdar town in central Gaza on Nov. 17 killed his father, also called Ahmad.
More than 170 Palestinians were killed in the eight-day assault on the Gaza Strip, and six Israelis were killed by rocket fire from Gaza.
The teenager's body will be transferred to Gaza for a funeral later on Wednesday.
