Seham Atta Al-Helou

July 20, 2014: Seham Atta Al-Helou, 56, was killed by Israeli missiles that struck homes in the Sheja’eyya neighborhood, east of Gaza city, during the heaviest shelling and bombardment targeting the densely-populated neighborhood, east of Gaza City; her husband, their three daughters and two sons, along with several relatives including twin infants and a child, were also killed, and dozens of 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.
