RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian man died on Friday from wounds sustained weeks earlier after Israeli forces fired tear gas at his car in northeast Jerusalem, medics said.
Moayad Nazih Ghazawneh, 35, experienced severe heart problems after Israeli soldiers fired tear gas canisters directly inside his car during clashes in al-Ram three weeks ago, medics told Ma'an.
His heart stopped and he was taken to the Palestine Medical Complex in Ramallah where he was revived and placed in intensive care.
It is unclear whether Ghazawneh was taking part in the clashes at the time. He leaves behind a wife and two young children.
Ghazawneh's death is the latest in a series of recent killings in the occupied West Bank.
Mahmoud al-Teiti, a 25-year-old journalism student, died on Tuesday after he was shot in the head with an expanding "dum dum" bullet by Israeli forces in al-Fawwar refugee camp, medics said. more
