The Committee identified the woman as Itaf Ahmad Zaqqout, 52, and added that she suffered from clogged arteries.
Her family said that she was repeatedly barred by the Israeli Authorities from leaving the Gaza Strip for medical treatment.
The ongoing siege on the Gaza Strip emptied its hospitals from the basic medical equipment and medications.
