A Palestinian man has died of the injuries he sustained during the eight-day Israeli war on the blockaded Gaza Strip, Press TV reports. The unidentified victim succumbed to his wounds on Monday morning. On November 14, Israel launched a deadly offensive on the besieged Gaza Strip, which killed nearly 170 Palestinians and injured some 1,200 others. Palestinian resistance fighters incessantly poured rockets and missiles onto the Israeli cities, killing at least five Israelis, including one soldier, in retaliation for the deadly attacks on Gaza. Egypt announced on November 21 that the Israeli regime and the Palestinian resistance movement, Hamas, had reached a ceasefire agreement. The recent Israeli aggression against Gaza reportedly caused more than USD 1.2 billion in direct and indirect damages. Hamas spokesman Taher al-Nunu said Israeli raids had cost USD 545 million, while indirect damages added up to some USD 700 million. Nunu said the eight-day operation had completely destroyed 200 homes and partially damaged another 8,000. Another 42 non-residential buildings, including the Hamas government headquarters, were also completely destroyed. MP/SZH
