Gazan pilgrim dies in Mecca after car accident

A Palestinian woman died in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on Friday after a bus carrying pilgrims from the Gaza Strip was involved in an accident. 

56-year-old Ibtisam Al-Shanti was travelling on the bus near Aisha Mosque in the At-Tan’im neighborhood in the city of Mecca, a few days ago, when the accident occurred. 

She was in a serious condition until her death was announced last night.

The Palestinian Ministry of Endowments and Religious Affairs announced that Al-Shanti will be buried in Mecca.
