A young man in Gaza has killed himself amid several other suicides in recent days in the Palestinian territories.

Ibrahim Yassin, 21, died on Saturday as a result of the wounds he suffered after burning himself a week ago in al-Shati refugee camp, west of Gaza City.

A second man, aged 23, shot himself in the head on Friday at his family’s home in the north of the Gaza Strip.

The man used a weapon belonging to one of his brothers, said a local source.

His body was taken to the Indonesian Hospital.
