Airwars assessment

On Sunday the 8th of October 2023, it was reported that civilians were injured when the Israeli military bombed the Abu al-Jubain family home, in the northern Gaza Strip.

This event was mentioned by multiple sources such as BintAl Assifa, Abul Salam Qamoum, Mohammed al-Yusuf and local news source MSDR News.

Individuals in Gaza @WaellodaOda and @i_07070 confirmed on Twitter/X that the house of the Abu al-Jubain family was bombed by an Israeli airstrike.

Multiple local sources including @ShebabAgency reported that the strike resulted in “casualties” and “injuries” but did not specify how many. Airwars has used the injury range 2-2 to capture these cases, as per our methodology.

Where sources identified the belligerent, all sources attributed the strikes to Israeli forces.
