An Israeli woman who was injured while fleeing rockets launched by terrorists from the Gaza Strip at her city died of her wounds on Sunday.

Jamil was survived by five children, 15 grandchildren and a great-granddaughter. Her husband Salem was killed in the 1973 Yom Kippur War.

The Hamas and Islamic Jihad terror groups carried out a 60-hour attack on Israel in May, during which they fired some 700 rockets at Israeli cities and towns.

Four men, Moshe Agadi, 58 and a father of four, Ziad al-Hamamda, 47 and a father of seven, Moshe Feder, 68, and Pinchas Menachem Prezuazman, 21 and a father of a baby, were killed by the rockets.
