In some cases entire bloodlines of families have been killed. AP highlights the story of Youssef Salem. One hundred seventy-three of his relatives were killed in Israeli airstrikes in December. About 100 more members of his family have died since then. Youssef Salem told the AP, “My uncles were wiped out, totally. The heads of households, their wives, children, and grandchildren.”
