On Tuesday, October 24th 2023, two people were reportedly killed and at least four others were injured, as a result of an alleged Israeli bombing on the home of the Mansour family in Tal Al-Sultan neighborhood, next to the Directorate of Social Affairs, in Rafah, Gaza Strip.

Mahmoud Sami, Mahmoud Al-Aarsak and Mohammad n. Abu Shammala reported on Facebook that 52-year-old Jamal Mahmoud Ali Mansour (also known as Abu Nidal) and his eldest son 29-year-old Nidal Jamal Mansour were killed.

Palestinian news agency Safa also stated that dozens were wounded and @Hamzaalnamla1 reported in a post on Twitter/X that there were four injuries, one of them serious.

Family members, including another of Jamal’s sons, Ali, and Nidal’s father-in-law, Abu Khaled Bibo, paid tribute to the victims on social media. Many sources also included images of Jamal Mahmoud Ali Mansour and Nidal Jamal Mansour from before the incident.
