The Israeli Air Force launched an airstrike on Hamas bases on Saturday, March 12, in which a 10-year-boy who lived next to one of the targets was killed, Gaza Health Ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said, according to AFP. His six-year-old sister died later of her injuries, local media reported.
Their elder brother, 13, suffered moderate injuries, the official added.
“We were sleeping when we heard an explosion and the ceiling went down. Our children were in another room. I heard a scream and rushed to them. They were sleeping all covered with blood,” the father of the children told RT.
