Palestinian dies of wounds sustained since 2009

A Palestinian youth died early Sunday succumbing to wounds he sustained by Israeli occupation fire since 2009 in the al-Fawwar Refugee Camp in Hebron.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said that Ya’qoub Nassar was shot and critically injured by Israeli soldiers in 2009, causing him hemiplegia which led to double-leg amputation.

Nassar also suffered from Kidney failure, which added to deterioration of his health condition, and he was pronounced dead early Sunday, the ministry added.
