Nahed Abu Rjela

August 04, 2014: Nahed Helmi Abu Rjela, 38, died from serious wounds she suffered on July 23rd, 2014, after the Israeli army fired three missiles at her father’s homes, in Khuza’a town, east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

Her father, Helmi Mohammad Abu Rjela, 67, was also killed and his body was found under the rubble on August 3rd, while the corpse of her brother, Abbas, 19, was found on August 11th, due to the extensive and ongoing Israeli bombardment, and ground invasion, which led to the destruction of dozens of homes.

Nahed and her mother, Siham, 57, were rescued by the neighbors, who were unable to transfer them out of the town until the next day, due to the Israeli ground invasion, but Nahed died from her serious wounds.

The extensive Israeli bombardment and shelling into various parts of the Gaza Strip, led to the death of at least 62 Palestinians that day, July 23rd. Nahed was referred to an Egyptian hospital, where she died from her serious wounds. Nahed was from Khuza’a. Source: Mezan Center for Human Rights
