6-Year-Old Gazan Girl and 2 Rescue Workers Remain Missing 10 Days After Last Signs of Life

HeadlineFeb 08, 2024

The Palestine Red Crescent Society says they still have no news about 6-year-old Hind and two of the group’s rescue workers who disappeared 10 days ago while attempting to reach her. The child was last heard from while in a car that came under attack by Israeli fire. Six of her relatives were killed while in the vehicle. Hind’s mother spoke out this week, imploring international actors to help locate her missing child.

Wissam Hamadah: “Every second, every second, I wait for my daughter. If we hear an ambulance, we think it’s Hind. If we hear people coming over, we think it’s Hind. Every crash, every gunshot, every bombing, every missile I hear, I think if it’s happening next to my daughter or directly to her or to the medics that went to her.”

Earlier today, the Palestine Red Crescent Society said another member of its rescue team, Mohammed al-Omari, was killed, bringing the total number of its aid workers killed by Israel’s attacks to 12.
