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 western Khan Yunis City in the southern Gaza Strip was being treated in Egyptian hospitals and was being prepared for a kidney transplant before he died on Thursday.

The nature of the wounds he sustained at the hands of Israeli forces remained unclear.
