Zionist captive dies after being wounded in Israeli attacks

TEHRAN, May 12 (MNA) – The Palestinian Resistance movement Hamas has announced the death of a Zionist captive from the wounds he had received during Israeli airstrikes against the Gaza Strip, which is enduring a genocidal Israeli war.

Hamas' armed wing, Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, made the announcement on Saturday.

It identified the captive in question as Nadav Popplewell, saying the 51-year-old had been wounded nearly a month ago.

“His health condition deteriorated, and he died because he did not receive intensive medical care in care centers as the enemy's destruction of hospitals in the Gaza Strip knocked them out of service,” said the brigades’ spokesman, Abu Obeida.

After Popplewell’s death, families of the captives held an emergency press conference, calling on the Israeli regime's prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu to reach a deal with Hamas without delay.

"We don't have a moment to spare! You must strive to implement a deal that will bring them all back today," the families said.

Hundreds of protesters, meanwhile, gathered in Tel Aviv and in the holy occupied city of al-Quds, trying to press the regime to strike a deal.

Hamas recently agreed to another truce proposal enabling cessation of the Israeli aggression and release of the rest of the captives. The Israeli regime, however, rejected the proposal.

Hamas released 105 of the captives during a week-long truce in late November.

Around 250 people were taken captive on October 7 last year during the al-Aqsa Storm, a retaliatory operation by Gaza’s Resistance groups.

At least 34,971 Palestinians have died in the Israeli genocide that began following the operation. Around 78,641 others have also been injured in the brutal military onslaught, while at least 7,000 people are unaccounted for.
