GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian man in the Gaza Strip succumbed on Thursday to wounds he sustained by Israeli forces in 2005 -- when he was 18 years old -- according to locals. 

Samed Fahmi Abu Shanab, 29, from the al-Amal neighborhood of the city of Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip, was being treated in Egyptian hospitals and was being prepared for a kidney transplant before he died on Thursday.
