May 11, 2023: Mahmoud Walid Abdul-Jawad, 26, was killed, along with two other Palestinian civilians, in an Israeli bombing that targeted a residential apartment in Khan Younis, in the southern Gaza Strip.

Media sources said the army fired a missile at an apartment in ‘Hamad City’ in Khan Younis, killing Mahmoud Hassan Ahu Ghali, 46, and his brother, Ali Hasan Au Ghali, 46, and his nephew, Mahmoud Walid Abdul-Jawad, 26.

At least seven Palestinians were injured, and several homes were damaged.

It is worth mentioning that Ali is one of the senior leaders of the Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad, and was one first Palestinians to join the group.

The army also fired a missile at a vacant home in Bani Soheila, east of Khan Younis, and a Palestinian land nearby.

The number of Palestinian homes and apartments destroyed or partially damaged by Israeli missiles arrived at fourteen, mainly in Rafah and Khan Younis, in southern Gaza.

Israeli missiles targeted ten homes and at least three cars on the offensive’s first day.

Israeli missiles have killed 24 Palestinians, including six children and three women, and injured at least 76, including 21 children and eight women since Israel launched its offensive three days earlier.

Many of the wounded Palestinians are in serious condition, especially after being buried under the rubber of their bombarded homes.
