Maysoun Zaki Hashem al-Hatou

May 11, 2021: Maysoun Zaki Hashem al-Hatou, 55, was killed by Israeli missiles in Gaza.

One of the missiles struck her home, killing her along with many other Palestinains.

The Palestinian Center For Human Rights (PCHR) said Israeli warplanes launched a missile at a civilian white Skoda car traveling on al-Moghrabi Street in central Gaza City.

As a result, six were killed, including the driver, a man and his wife who were inside the car, a civilian in front of his house and two other passers-by.

Those killed were identified as the driver Mustafa Mazen Salem Kurdiyah, 22, Sa’id Hashim Sa’id al-Hatu, 67, and his wife Maysoun, in addition to Mansour Yousif Hasan al-Dreimly, 66, who was in front of his house in the area, and Nader Mohammed al-Ghazali, 47 along with his nephew ‘Abdulsalam Mahmoud Nabih al-Ghazali, 28, who were also from the same area.  Moreover, the children of Sa’id al-Hatou, Mohammed and Yara, were wounded.

The PCHR said: The Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) escalated its offensive on the Gaza Strip and continued the policy of collective punishment and retaliatory bombing.

IOF targeted residential towers and buildings; some of them were destroyed over its residents and destroyed the infrastructure in the city centers and densely populated neighborhoods.

They also targeted agricultural lands, governmental facilities and military sites belonging to Palestinian armed groups to turn the Gaza Strip into an insecure zone.

Over the past hours, the Gaza Strip population lived in real terror and fear due to dozens of intense airstrikes that targeted various places; some were in densely populated areas across the Gaza Strip.

IOF announced that 80 Israeli warplanes attacked five hundred targets within 2 days. Further to PCHR’s press release issued yesterday, Israeli warplanes carried out hundreds of airstrikes while the Israeli gunboats and artillery bombarded various targets in the Gaza Strip.

As a result, 24 Palestinians, including 5 children and 3 women, were killed. Among those killed were a man, his wife, and their daughter; an elderly man and his wife, a woman, and her child from Gaza City; two siblings from Deir al-Balah, and a child killed in an Israeli shooting at Palestinian farmers in eastern Khan Yunis.

Also, 136 Palestinians, including thirty-three women and twenty-nine children, were wounded. Additionally, five houses, four towers and several facilities and military sites were bombarded.

Thus, the death toll since the beginning of the Israeli offensive has risen to fifty, including fourteen children and four women, and the number of those wounded has risen to 211, including fifty-one children and forty women.
