JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian who was injured during the Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip succumbed to his wounds early Tuesday in Makassed hospital in Jerusalem.
The body of Huthaifa Abu Elayan, 20, was taken back to the Gaza Strip through the Erez crossing in an ambulance.
Abu Elayan was injured in an airstrike that targeted his house in Khan Younis, and was taken to Makassed Hospital on Monday.
Some 30 injured Palestinians from Gaza are being treated in Makassed, and the hospital expects dozens more to arrive during the coming few days.
