A young man, Khalil Omar Muhammad (Alyan Al-Astal), was allegedly killed by Israeli forces in the Gaza Strip on October 15th, 2023.
Funeral arrangements for the deceased were posted by the Al Astal Family Website and were planned for 10am in Al Nimsawi. A family member named Reda Salem Alastal also posted a condolence message for Khalil.
Airwars has matched the name of the civilian killed with the Palestinian Ministry of Health list of fatalities in Gaza released on October 26th, 2023, which explicitly mentions that names on the list are “victims of the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip”. As there was little other reporting on who was responsible, the strike status has been graded as “single source claim”, and the strike type as airstrike/and or artillery given the nature of Israeli actions at this time.
