GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Journalist Abdullah Murtaja succumbed Monday to wounds he sustained in an airstrike in the al-Shujaiyya neighborhood in Gaza City two weeks earlier.

Two other journalists were killed in the same airstrike in eastern Gaza City.

Ashraf al-Qidra, a health ministry spokesman, said that Murtaja died of blood loss from the injury.

Murtaja was a reporter for the al-Aqsa TV channel.

Seventeen journalists have been killed since the beginning of the Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip.
