Palestinian sources reported that a fresh Israeli air raid targeting a horse carriage in the northern Gaza strip town of Beit Lahiya left three members of a Palestinian family killed and five others injured on Thursday night.
The sources said those killed are a Palestinian woman and two of her sons. Medical sources identified the killed as Maryam Al Rahel and her sons Mohamed and Mansour.
With this attack, the number of the Palestinians killed today by the army reaches five. On Thursday midday in an ‘apparently’ total disregard to civilian lives in Gaza, an Israeli warplane fired a missile on a car in northern Gaza Strip, killing a Palestinian and his wife.
Palestinian medical sources reported that Ra’d Abu Fool, 43, of the Popular Resistance Committees’ armed wing and his wife Amna Abu Fool, 40, have been killed today noon, when an Israeli warplane fired at least one missile towards their car.
Palestinian health ministry’s sources had earlier voiced belief that the Israeli army has been using fletches and illicit weapons against Palestinian civilians. Such doubts have not been verified by independent sources yet. Israeli army attacks on Gaza have been steadily increasing through the week, with a death toll estimated at least 28 and injuries at about 60; 12 of whom are critical.
