The Palestinian Health Ministry in the Gaza Strip has reported that a young man died, Wednesday, from serious wounds he suffered, two weeks earlier, after Israeli soldiers shot him with live fire.

It stated that the young man, identified as Ahmad Khaled Najjar, 21, was shot with an expanding bullet in the abdomen.

The Ministry added that Najjar suffered very serious wounds, and was receiving treatment at the Gaza European Hospital, before he was transferred to the Al-Ahli Hospital, in the southern West Bank city of Hebron, where he died from his wounds.

The Palestinian is the cousin of both Ramzi Najjar, who was killed by Israeli army fire, on June 4th 2018, and his corpse is still held by Israel, and the medic, Razan Najjar, 22, who was killed by Israeli forces while helping treat wounded protesters, on Friday June 1st, 2018.
