Airwars assessment

At least six civilians, including three women and two children, were injured in a reported Israeli airstrike on a house in Jabalia city on May 14, 2021.

The majority of sources reported six injuries, including a civilian in critical condition. The Palestinian Centre of Human Rights and Al Haq said the victims included three women and two children. Both reported that the injured were taken to the Indonesian hospital where two of the injuries were described as serious and the rest moderate. Shihab reported that the number of people injured rose from six to nine.

The house belonged to the Abd Rabbo family. @ramy3zat tweeted that the house of his cousin, Shadi Abd Rabbo, and Shadi’s brothers, was targeted without warning. Two sources said it was completely destroyed.

The Israeli Defense Forces tweeted that “Recently, fighter jets and aircraft attacked the homes of three Hamas terrorist operatives who serve as terrorist infrastructure and weapons depots… 2. Shadi ‘Abd al-Hadhi – an operative in Hamas’ parachute formation. His house, which was located in the center of the Strip, contained paragliding unit equipment.” It is possible that this strike is related to this incident.

The Palestinian Centre for Human Rights said the house was hit with three missiles at 6.30pm.

The incident occured at 18:30:00 local time.
