At least 13 people, including six children, were killed when an Israeli bomb hit a house in the Jabalia refugee camp in the northern Gaza Strip on Wednesday. The attack was part of the ongoing Israeli offensive against Hamas.
The house belonged to the Abu Karsh family, who were hosting relatives who had fled from other areas of Gaza under heavy Israeli bombardment.
According to witnesses and medical sources, the bomb struck the house around 2:00 p.m. local time, causing it to collapse and trapping the victims under the rubble. Rescue workers and volunteers rushed to the scene to dig out the bodies and survivors, while ambulances transported the wounded to nearby hospitals.
The violence has sparked widespread anger and protests across the Middle East and around the world, as millions of Muslims expressed their solidarity with the Palestinian people and condemned Israel’s actions.
Several countries have also called for an immediate end to the hostilities and urged the United Nations Security Council to take action to protect civilians and uphold international law.
