Israeli Attack on Rafah Home Kills at Least 18 People, Half of Them Children

HeadlineMar 26, 2024

Despite the ceasefire resolution, Israel has continued to pummel the Gaza Strip. A bombing on a house in Rafah killed at least 18 people earlier today, including at least nine children. This is one of their surviving relatives.

Alaa Abdel Latif: “Nine children, the oldest was 8 years old. They all had nothing to do with this. … They fell asleep with the news of the Ramadan ceasefire, only to wake up — they didn’t wake up. They are not here anymore. I have no one left in this world. No one.”

Elsewhere in the Gaza Strip, officials say at least 12 Palestinians died after hundreds swam into the Mediterranean Sea to retrieve aid that had been airdropped northwest of Gaza City.
