Airwars assessment

On October 15th 2023, alleged Israeli airstrikes hit several homes situated in the 17th District of the Al-Tawam area, in the Northern Gaza Strip, reportedly killing one person referred to as a “martyr” by multiple sources and injuring five other civilians that were later taken to the Indonesian Hospital, located in Bait Lahia, North Gaza Governorate. No other details were available about the identity of the victims or their condition.

Where sources identified a belligerent, all sources attributed the strikes to Israeli forces. A day after the incident, Shadi Press posted pictures on Facebook showing the devastation caused by the bombardment.
