Kamal Mohammad al-Yaziji

Kamal YazijiJune 13, 2018: Kamal Mohammad al-Yaziji died from serious complications caused by wounds he suffered after Israeli soldiers shot him eight years ago.

Medical sources reported that Kamal, from Beit Hanoun, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip, died from serious complications resulting from an Israeli bullet in his spine.

His family said Kamal was shot by live Israeli army fire in his spine, causing paraplegia. Since that time, he has suffered from constant medical issues and complications, including serious infections and skin breakdowns.

They added that Kamal also developed gangrene, followed by further serious infections that claimed his life.

The Gaza Strip, devastated by various Israeli military offensives, and ongoing blockade since June 2007, have left the densely-populated Gaza Strip lacking basic humanitarian supplies, including specialized medical equipment and medications.

It is worth mentioning that many patients, suffering with various health conditions, including cancer and kidney diseases, have died due to the ongoing siege on Gaza, after being unable to receive treatment either in Israeli hospitals, or in hospitals in Arab counties and other parts of the world.
