Airwars assessment

Injuries were reported after an alleged Israeli airstrike on a residence in the Ma’an area, southeast of Khan Younis, on October 11th, 2023. Though the number of individuals injured was not confirmed by sources, a post on Facebook reported them to be “several”, which has therefore been quantified as 2 per Airwars methodology.

The house was located near the Abdullah bin Rawaha Mosque. No other information was found on the victims and their condition.

Due to the scale and urgency of Airwars’ assessment process, all images have been automatically uploaded to each assessment with the graphic filter applied to protect users. We have also included all images identified from the sources, which may also include any imagery of combatants.
