Gazans Continue to Lose Children, Parents, Loved Ones as Israeli Attacks Continue with Impunity

HeadlineApr 16, 2024

An Israeli airstrike destroyed a mosque and homes in Gaza’s northern Jabaliya refugee camp. Many were reported injured, including children. Another attack on the Nuseirat refugee camp killed at least three people.

In Rafah, grieving family members at the al-Najjar Hospital said their final goodbyes today to loved ones who were killed in an overnight Israeli airstrike. This is a Palestinian mother, Umm Rami Shabat.

Umm Rami Shabat: “I lost my feelings. I lost my feelings. I don’t have feelings anymore. Do I have feelings still? I am going crazy. They should put me with my son. My son was very dear to me. He had five daughters and a son. His son is only 1 year old. He brought them to me for Eid, to sleep over, and they left, as if he was saying goodbye to them. This boy is attached to his father.”
