Two Palestinians have been killed in attacks on a Turkish airport on Tuesday. The second victim is a three-year-old boy who today succumbed to his wounds, the Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs reported.
Rayan Muhammad Said Shreim died due to wounds he had sustained during the attack on the Ataturk Airport in Istanbul two days earlier.
Rayan’s mother, Sundus Abd al-Halim Hashem, was also reportedly killed during the attack. Initial reports by the Palestinian Embassy to Turkey identified the slain Palestinian woman as Nisrin Hashim Shafee Hammad.

The attack on Turkey’s airport resulted in at least 42 dead, with an additional 238 wounded.
Both Hamas and Fatah political movements denounced the attack on Wednesday, calling it a “crime against humanity,” and voicing their solidarity with the Turkish people and the families of the victims.
Though no group has claimed responsibility for Tuesday’s attack so far, Turkish Prime Minister, Binali Yildirim, said the Turkish government suspects the Islamic State. If confirmed, this would be the terrorist group’s largest attack in Turkey to date.
