Rifqa Jamil

July 7, 2019: Rifqa Jamil, 89, died of an injury sustained two months prior when Palestinian resistance fighters fired shells into her area. She fell while running to a bomb shelter, and injured her back.

Since that time, Israeli medical sources report that her condition severely deteriorated, and she died on July 7th. According to a statement from the hospital, “During her hospitalization at Barzilai Medical Center, other problems relating to her health arose which, as a result of her condition gradually deteriorated”.

Jamil was a resident of Ashkelon, a city on the coast of southern Israel which was once home to tens of thousands of Palestinian families who are now refugees in the walled-in Gaza Strip.

She was also the widow of an Israeli soldier, who was killed during the 1973 War against Palestinians and Arab states.

Her injury was sustained during the escalation two months ago, in which Israeli forces killed dozens of Palestinians through airstrikes and mortar shells, and Palestinian resistance fighters responded by firing shells into Israel, killing three Israeli civilians.

Ziad Alhamamda

May 5, 2019: Ziad Alhamamda, was killed by a Palestinian shell while working at a factory in Ashkelon.

As Israeli forces continue their massive escalation in the Gaza Strip, Palestinian resistance groups responded by launching hundreds of small-scale rockets across the border between Gaza and Israel, killing four Israelis and wounding at least eight.

Ziad was one of the four killed on the Israeli side. He was a Palestinian Bedouin from the unrecognized Negev village of as-Sawaween.

Moshe Feder, 68, was killed in Kfar Saba by an anti-tank mortar fired from Gaza across the border.

Also Sunday, Pinchas Menachem Prezuazman, 21, was killed by a rocket fired by Palestinian resistance fighters toward the Israeli city of Ashdod, on the coast of Israel, on Sunday evening.

According to Ynet, “Prezuazman was walking in the street when he heard the air-raid siren and ran to seek cover in a nearby building but was hit by shrapnel when he entered the stairwell.”

In Ashkelon, a city located about 14 kilometers north of Gaza, Moshe Agadi, 58, was killed in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Israeli forces have reportedly killed 26 Palestinians during the past three days – four on Friday, four on Saturday, and 18 on Sunday.

According to the Israeli military, an estimated 600 rockets were fired from Gaza toward Israel on Saturday and Sunday, most of which were intercepted by the ‘Iron Dome’ defense system .

A military spokesperson told Ynet, “Two hundred rockets were fired at residential areas, with an interception rate above 86 percent”.

The Palestinian shells are crude and mostly homemade, with no ability to make precise aiming. The damage done by these rockets is far less than the missiles dropped by Israel into the Gaza Strip — although they can be deadly if there is a direct hit.
