Hedaya Talal Al-Helou

July 20, 2014: Hedaya Talal Al-Helou, 24, was killed by Israeli missiles that struck homes in the Sheja’eyya neighborhood, east of Gaza City. Her husband, 2-year-old daughter and five-month twin infant boys, along with several relatives, including children, were also killed, and many Palestinians were wounded. It took rescue and civil defense teams until July 27th to recover most of the bodies of the slain Palestinians as they remained buried under the rubble amidst ongoing Israeli bombardment.
