A 22-year-old civilian who was wounded in the fighting between Israel and Gaza militants succumbed to his wounds on Friday, raising the Palestinian death toll from the weekend confrontation to 49.

Anas Khaled Anshasi, 22, was critically wounded in an Israeli air strike east of Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip.

On Thursday, 10-year-old Layan al-Shaer also succumbed to her wounds after she was wounded in an Israeli strike, while two more Gazan children are fighting for their lives in a hospital in Jerusalem.

More than 300 Palestinians were wounded over the weekend, when Israel launched a military operation against Islamic Jihad targets across Gaza, and the militant group fired hundreds of rockets at Israel.
