Eight children killed by Israeli strike on Gaza building, Palestinian relief workers say

Ten members of a Palestinian family were killed in an Israeli military strike west of Gaza. They are eight children and two women who were in their three-story building in Al Shati refugee camp.

Ten members of the same family were killed on the morning of May 15 by an Israeli airstrike in the western Gaza Strip, Palestinian aid said. Among the victims were eight children and two women, killed while in their three-story building located in the Al Shati refugee camp, according to these paramedical sources in Gaza. The Israeli army for its part announced overnight at least five strikes on the entire Gaza Strip.

Among the targets, according to an army statement, was one of the headquarters of Taoufik Abou Naim, commander of the Hamas security forces, as well as several “rocket launch sites” north and south of. Hamas enclave and “military intelligence buildings”.

The last balance sheet of the Palestinian authorities reported on the evening of May 14 of 126 dead, including 31 children, and 950 injured in the Israeli bombardments on the Gaza Strip since the beginning of the week.

More than 2,000 rockets have been launched into Israeli territory since May 10, killing nine people, including a child and a soldier, and injuring more than 560.

The threat of expulsion of Palestinian families from the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in East Jerusalem for the benefit of Jewish settlers has since May 6 resulted in a peak of tensions, before turning to clash between Palestinians and Israelis on the Esplanade des Mosques. The conflict between the Palestinian armed movements and the Israeli army has resumed, with the IDF responding to rocket fire from the Gaza Strip with strikes in the Palestinian enclave. In clashes between the IDF and Arab protesters in the occupied West Bank, ten Palestinians were killed and around 150 others injured on May 14 alone. In Israel, the mixed city of Lod has also been the scene of increasing violence between its inhabitants.
