October 14, 2023: Israeli aircraft destroyed a house in the southern Gaza Strip with its residents still inside, Anadolu Agency reported citing local officials Saturday. In a statement, the Interior Ministry in the Gaza Strip said that “the house was bombed while the family who owned it was inside.”
There were a number of dead and injured underneath the rubble, the ministry added. The ministry said civil defense and ambulance crews are working to “recover the bodies and evacuate the wounded.”
A week ago Israeli forces launched a sustained and forceful military campaign against the Gaza Strip in response to a military offensive by the Palestinian group Hamas in Israeli territories.
