On Tuesday, October 17th, 2023, six civilians, including a baby, were reportedly injured and two were killed as a result of an alleged Israeli airstrike on a residential apartment in Al-Nada Building in Al-Maghazi Camp, in the central Gaza strip.
Local sources, including Palestine News, reported that there were a number of people killed and injured. Ismail Awad’s Facebook post stated that there were six injuries, including a baby, and two deaths, but did not provide names of the victims. Twitter/X user @Alaqsavoice Brk wrote that a number of casualties had arrived at Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital.
Hana Al-Maghazi Page included an image of the building that was hit by the strike.
Only one source identified the belligerent as the Israeli military, therefore, Airwars qualified the strike as a “single source claim”.
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.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
