GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — Nearly a month after a series of Israeli operations pounded Gaza, a 28-year-old nurse from Rafah, said to be affiliated to Hamas’ armed wing, died Thursday of wounds sustained in an airstrike.

Palestinian medics said Shadi Az-Zatmeh was critically injured in Israeli aerial shelling on April 8 in the Tel As-Sultan district west of Rafah. Two others, identified as Hamas leaders, were immediately killed in the strike.

Az-Zatmeh’s death brings the number killed over three days in April to 20, with 69 injured, including women and children. Gaza factions reached a ceasefire deal on April 10, which appears to have largely held, despite criticism from some leftist and Islamist groups in the coastal enclave.

The Al-Qassam Brigades said it mourned the death of Az-Zatmeh, calling him one of their field leaders.
