New Report Refutes Israeli Account of 6-Year-Old Hind Rajab’s Killing by IOF

HeadlineApr 19, 2024

More details have emerged about the death of Hind Rajab, a 6-year-old girl in Gaza City who was killed by Israeli forces in January in a car alongside five of her family members. Prior to her death, Hind was on the phone with emergency workers pleading for help. Two paramedics from the Palestinian Red Crescent who responded to her call were also killed in their ambulance. Israel denied responsibility for the killings by claiming its forces were not present, but a new Washington Post investigation finds Israeli armored vehicles were in the vicinity of the attack on Hind Rajab. The Post also reveals that the destroyed ambulance was discovered along a route provided by Israeli authorities after the Palestine Red Crescent had received approval to respond. The ambulance was bombed about 164 feet from the car with Hind and her family. The Post reports the destruction of the ambulance was consistent with the use of a round fired by Israeli tanks and that the gunfire audible on the phone call was consistent with Israeli weapons.
