A Palestinian youth died on Thursday, as a result of wounds sustained during the eleven-day-long Israeli bombing of Gaza from May 10th to 21st, before a ceasefire was negotiated by Egypt.
Local sources said that Ahmad Kamel Ammar, 32, a resident of Al-Bureij camp, was declared dead in a hospital in Al-Arish in Egypt, after having been evacuated for medical treatment following the declaration of ceasefire.
The number of Palestinians killed during the Israeli aggression rose to 254, including 66 children and 39 women; among the dead are seventeen elderly and five with special needs.
Over 50,000 people were driven from their homes during the Israeli bombardment.
Now that the bombing has temporarily ceased, they are still stuck within the open-air prison of the Gaza Strip, in which 2.4 million Palestinians live crowded together in harsh economic conditions due to an Israeli siege that has been in place for fourteen years.
