Aseel Mahmoud Hamad Dheir, 34, died on Monday in Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, from wounds she suffered at the hands of the Israeli army during their invasion of Gaza in the summer of 2014.

Dheir was severely injured in an Israeli airstrike on her home in southern Gaza, and became hemaplegic (paralyzed on one side of her body) as a result of her injuries.

According to medical sources, she had suffered tremendously from her egregious wounds over the last six years, and finally succumbed to them on Monday July 13th, 2020.

According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza, some 2,147 Palestinians were killed during the 51-day Israeli offensive on Gaza in 2014, including 72 who later succumbed to their wounds.

UN records state that and estimated 84 per cent of Palestinians that were killed were civilians, not engaged in armed resistance to the Israeli invasion of their land.
