Tamim Ghassan Hijazi

August 06, 2022:  Tamim Ghassan Hijazi, 24, was killed when the Israeli airforce  fired missiles into several buildings in Gaza city, Khan Younis, in the southern part of the coastal region, and many areas in the central and northern parts of the Gaza Strip before dawn on Saturday.

This wave of missiles came several hours after the Israeli army fired missiles into the fifth and sixth floors of Burj Falasteen (Palestine Tower) in the center of Gaza city.

The Palestine Tower consists of thirteen floors and consists of many government offices and media centers.

The bombing also caused damage to many surrounding buildings, stores, and commercial facilities.

Minutes later, the army fired many missiles into the Sheja’eyya neighborhood, east of Gaza, killing three Palestinians, including two civilians, Yousef Salman Mohammad Qaddoum, 24, Ala’ Abdullah Riyad Qaddoum, 5, and Emad Abdul-Rahim Ibrahim Shallah, 52.

The Israeli missiles also killed Ahmad Mazen Mahmoud Azzam, 25, in the Zeitoun neighborhood, one of the largest and most densely populated areas in Gaza city.

The Health Ministry in Gaza has confirmed that the Israeli missiles and shells injured 36 Palestinians, including five children and four women.

Also, the Israeli army fired an artillery shell that struck the home of Adnan Atiya al-Amour, killing his daughter Donyana Mohammad al-Amour, 22.

The Israeli missiles also killed Mohammad Ahmad Nasrallah, 25, and injured his daughter in addition to two other Palestinians east of Beit Hanoun, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.

Furthermore, an Israeli drone fired missiles into an area west of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, killing Fadel Mohammad Zo’rob30, and Mohammad Hasan al-Bayok, 35, in addition to wounding seven other Palestinians, including two children. The attacks also caused damage to a Palestinian ambulance.

Two Palestinians, including one child, were injured after the Israeli army bombed the al-Brazil neighborhood, south of Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

The army also carried out at least ten airstrikes targeting resistance centers and many residential neighborhoods in Rafah, causing excessive damage.

The Palestinians Center For Human Rights (PCHR) said its field researchers and teams are still documenting and validating the latest incidents and casualties, adding that the Israeli offensive could take a long time, as stated by Israeli military leaders and government officials.

The PCHR condemned the Israeli offensive, the extrajudicial assassinations, and the constant targeting of Palestinian civilians in violation of International Humanitarian Law and all related international treaties.

The slain Palestinians are:

  1. Emad Abdul-Rahim Shallah, 52.
  2. Yousef Salman Qaddoum, 24.
  3. Ala’ Abdullah Qaddoum, 5.
