Palestinian medical sources in Rafah, south of Gaza Strip, announced Saturday the death of a local resident due to wounds he sustained three years ago during an Israeli army invasion into the city.

The victim, identified as Iyad Abu Taha,24, was critically shot and wounded by the Israeli army gunfire three years ago and since then he has been admitted to several local and overseas hospitals for treatment.

The Rafah city, to the south of Gaza Strip, has been frequently exposed to many Israeli attacks over the past seven years, given its proximity to Gaza-Egypt border line.

In one of its large-scale attacks on Rafah, the Israeli army invaded two years ago the Tal-Alsultan neighborhood, west of the city, killing at least 65 Palestinian men, women and children and destroying the neighborhood’s infrastructure including electricity and water networks.
