At Least 34 Palestinians Killed Overnight as Israeli Bombardment of Gaza Continues

The Israeli bombardment of Gaza continued through Friday night into Saturday with no signs of letting up. At least 34 were killed in the bombings Saturday night, which included a missile strike that wiped out a family – a mother and her four young children in Shati refugee camp, west of Gaza City. In addition, Israel targeted and destroyed a second high-rise housing international media outlets, destroying it completely including TV studios, equipment and transmission antennas.

According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, at least 139 Palestinians have been killed in Gaza since Monday, including at least 39 children and 22 women, and over 1000 others wounded. One Israeli soldier and 6 Israeli civilians have been killed in the same time period, including two children.

The Palestinian family that was wiped out Friday night was that of Mohammed al-Hadidi (Abu Hatab). He told reporters that his wife and five children had gone to celebrate the Eid al-Fitr holiday with his wife’s brother. His wife and three of his children, age 6 to 14, were killed, while an 11-year-old is missing. Only his 5-month-old son Omar is known to have survived.

“At 1:30 in the morning, I was surprised by severe vibration and shelling in the area, and I ran to see where the bombing was, I did not know where, and I was shocked when I saw the whole house of the children’s maternal uncle destroyed.”

He continued, tears streaming down his face, “This is a major crime against humanity. Children are supposed safe in their homes. A civilian family is killed. What is their fault for being bombed?”

The Al-Hadidi family that was killed last night consists of his wife: Maha Mohammad Abd al-Aal al-Hadidi (Abu Hatab), and his children Suhaib Muhammad al-Hadidi (14 years), Yahya Mohammad al-Hadidi (11 years), Abd al-Rahman Mohammad al-Hadidi (8 years) and Osama Mohammad al-Hadidi (6 years), and the only survivor Omar Muhammad al-Hadidi, injured, aged five months.

Mohammad al-Yaqoubi, an eyewitness, described the bombing of his neighbor’s house, “We were sleeping and suddenly we heard the sound of intense bombardment. I live on the fifth floor and only a meter away from their house. When I managed to reach the ground, I was shocked by the destruction of our neighbor’s house. Children, oh God, where are mercy and humanity, a whole house destroyed in a brutal manner over people! ”

Several other families were also torn to pieces in their homes Friday night. In al-Boreij refugee camp, four family members of the al-Omar family were killed, including a 13-year old girl. In Beit Lahia, four members of the Amen family were massacred by a missile. In the al-Jneina neighborhood in Rafah, four members of the al-Rantisi family were killed, including a two-year old baby.
