Khan Younis – Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Friday escalated their ferocious attacks on Palestinians in the Gaza Strip killing a mother of five children in Khan Younis and three resistance fighters in Beit Lahia.
Locals reported that Zahr Kudaih, 33, was killed with a bullet in her chest in the Faraheen area east of Khan Younis at the hands of IOF special units.
They added that Zahr, a mother of five children, was the sixth member of the Kudaih family to be killed at the hands of Israeli troops in the past 24 hours.
IOF troops killed six Palestinians in the same area in Khan Younis and four in Gaza city on Thursday, in a raid on the home of a Qassam commander who survived the shelling, including two little girls.
In Beit Lahia north of the Strip, an IOF drone fired a missile at a white Golf car killing three Qassam fighters, of the armed wing of the Hamas Movement, and wounding five civilians.
Locals said that rescue workers with great difficulty extracted the severed, charred remains of the three martyrs from the twisted metal of the car.
The number of Palestinian martyrs killed in the Gaza Strip at the hands of IOF troops over the past 24 hours thus rose to 14.
