Israel Bombs Gaza Strip, Killing 13 People, Including Children

HeadlineMay 09, 2023

At least 13 people were killed in the Gaza Strip overnight as Israeli forces targeted residential apartments in Gaza City. Al Jazeera reports three commanders of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement were among the dead, along with their wives and children. This is a Gaza resident.

Hani Jaber: “People have not been able to sleep since 4:00 in the morning. The children woke up to the sound of explosions, and they were terrified. We have children, women, patients and elderly people. This is not normal.”

Israel’s latest attack comes just a week after Israeli airstrikes rained down on the besieged Gaza Strip, following rocket launches from Gaza in response to the death of Palestinian hunger striker Khader Adnan while in an Israeli prison.
