Airwars assessment

On Friday, October 20, 2023, eight civilians were killed and up to 100 injured – including women and children – after an alleged airstrike by the Israeli military on the ‘Nawfal’ family residence on the 20th Street of ‘Block C’ in Al Nuseirat refugee camp near the centre of Gaza Strip.

The Palestinian news agency Safa reported that the Nawfal family home, which was located near the entrance of Nusseirat, on 20th Street, near the Al-Huda Mosque, was struck. Multiple sources reported that more than 100 civilians were inside the house during the incident, with @sabrifarra24 posting an urgent plea for ambulances to go to the house to help the wounded. According to a post by @Hamzaalnamla1 on Twitter/X, dozens of displaced civilians were sheltering in the house when the strike occurred. Images posted by @Alburaij1948 and @Abdulkarim on Facebook show that civilians, including children, suffered severe injuries during the strike. However, the exact details and condition of those injured is unknown. Multiple sources reported that the majority of the victims were children.

During the strike, 36-year-old Hanan Ahmed Salim Baousha and her husband, 39-year-old Saed Nawfal Saleh Nawfal, were reported killed along with their four children. Their two daughters, 17-year-old Malak Saed Nawfal and 14-year-old Abeer Saed Nawfal were killed as well as their two sons, 12-year-old Muhammad Saed Nawfal and 6-year-old Amir Saed Nofal. The airstrike also resulted in the deaths of Hanan’s father, 70-year-old Ahmed Salim Baalousha (also known as Abu Iyad), and her mother, Jamila Salem Atwa Baalousha.

A Facebook page that reports urgent news about Gaza reported that seven victims were recovered from the incident initially, and described some of them, from the Nawfal family, as being in “pieces.”

The Twitter/X account @Gazanow111 reported that the house belonged to Nawfal Nawfal, also known as Abu Raed, who is likely the father of Saed Nawfal Saleh Nawfal.

@Hamzaalnamla1 reported in a post on Twitter/X that the bomb ignited a fire on the site.

Since the incident, heartfelt testimonials have been posted online by the family members of the deceased. Iyad and Mero Baalousha, the children of Ahmed Salim Baalousha and Jamila Salem Baalousha, posted to Facebook mourning the death of their parents, their sister Hanan, her husband Saed, along with their four nephews and nieces.

The names of all of the identified victims, except for Jamila Salem Atwa Baalousha, have been reconciled with the Palestinian Ministry of Health list of fatalities published on October 26, 2023.

Where sources identified the belligerent, all sources attributed the strikes to Israeli forces.

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.

Airwars assessment

On October 20th 2023, between 18 and 22 civilians – including women and children – all members of the ‘Abu Al-Naja’ family were killed, and between 79 and 114 others were injured after an alleged Israeli airstrike on their residential home in the Abu-Shahla neighbourhood in east Khan Yunis, Gaza. It has been reported that the house was subject to an airstrike whilst the residents were asleep.

@ShehabAgency reported that the Abu Al-Naja household was one of six residential homes struck by the Israeli military in the Khan Yunis Governorate. Ambulance and civil defence crews were on-site to take those killed and wounded to Nasser Medical Hospital. The grandparents of the family, Khaled Mahmoud Abu Al-Naja, and his wife Muzain Musa Abu Al-Naja were killed during the alleged strike, along with their five children: Hani Khaled Abu Al-Naja (son), Khalil Khaled Abu Al-Naja (son), Jana Khaled Abu Al-Naja (daughter), Nancy Khaled Abu Al-Naja (daughter) and Hanaa Khaled Abu Al-Naja (daughter). The alleged strike also killed the husband of Hanaa Abu Al-Naja, Suleiman Mahmoud Abu Rock, and the wife of Hani Abu Al-Naja, Israa Al-Muzain.

There were also nine grandchildren of Khaled Abu Al-Naja and Muzain Abu Al-Naja killed during the alleged strike. Six children of Hani Abu Al-Naja and Israa Al-Muzain were killed: Khaled (son), Ahmed (son), Muhannad (son), Rand (daughter) Rawand (daughter) and Raghad (daughter). Two children of Hanaa Abu Al-Naja and Suleiman Mahmoud Abu Rock were killed: Remas (daughter) and Mahmoud (son). The daughter of Nancy Khaled Abu Al-Naja, Toleen (daughter), was also killed during the alleged airstrike.

Since the incident, family members have posted tributes online. Marwa Mohammed Naja, the great niece of Muzain Musa Abu Al-Naja, commiserated the death of her great aunt, and Khaled Mahmoud Abu Al-Naja along with the other “22 people in the house”. These sentiments were echoed by Waam Younes Abu Al-Naja, the niece of Muzain Musa Abu Al-Naja, in a Facebook post that states that more than 20 members of the Abu Al-Naja family were killed during the alleged airstrike. However, the @AbuAl-NajaFamilyGatheringOfficial Facebook post states that 18 members of the family were killed during the alleged Israeli airstrike.

There has also been an outpouring of tributes via Facebook from the cousins of Suleiman Mahmoud Abu Rock, among whom include Ahmad Abu Rok, Ola N. Reck, Deya Abu Rouk and Raed Rouk, Zakrua Haesan Rok. The former neighbour of Suleiman Mahmoud Abu Rock, Wael Abdelaziz Alnaka, expressed his regret at the death of Suleiman and his wife Hanaa along with their two children.

@ShehabAgency initially reported that 34 injuries resulted from the recent attacks on Khan Yunis, then raised the number to 51, and ultimately reported the number of 79 injuries. However, it is unclear how many injuries occurred amongst this incident. @PalinfoAr put the number of injuries at 114, and images posted by @ShehabAgency show at least three children being treated for injuries in a medical facility.

At least 20 members of an “Al Naja” family were also reported killed in an incident three days prior, recorded in Airwars’ archive in ISPT0298.

Where sources identified the belligerent, all sources attributed the strikes to Israeli forces.

Where possible, Airwars has matched names with the Palestinian Ministry of Health list of nearly 7000 victims’ names and ID numbers released on October 26th.

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.

Airwars assessment

In the early hours of Friday, October 20th, 2023, alleged Israeli airstrikes hit the al-Farra and Hadayed’s family homes in the Sheikh Nasser neighbourhood of Khan Younis, south of the Gaza Strip, reportedly killing 11 civilians spanning three generations. The victims of the attack included three children, five women, and three men.

Among those killed were grandfather 70 year old Abdul Raouf Saleh Ali al-Farra and his wife 60 year old Samira Muhammad Harzallah, alongside their two daughters, 21 year old Ghadeer Abdel Raouf Saleh al-Farra and 25 year old Hala Abdel Raouf Saleh al-Farra, their son, 32 year old Ibrahim Abdel Raouf Saleh al-Farra, and their daughter-in-law, Heba Salim Abu Nimah. The incident, reported by The Palestine Post (@PalpostN) and Twitter/X user @ehabomar21 to have occurred in the early morning hours of Friday, also claimed the lives of Abdul and Samira’s grandson (Heba and Ibrahim’s children), less than a year old Abdel Raouf Ibrahim Abdel Raouf al-Farra, and granddaughter, 1 year old Siwar Ibrahim Abdel Raouf al-Farra, as well as the Hadayed family’s young member Raed Abu Hadayed and his wife, whose name is still unknown. @ehabomar21’s tweet mentioned that “there were no survivors under the rubble” and a post from Yaser Mouaye Alfarra mentioned that at the time, the child Samira Ibrahim al-Farra’s body was still under rubble, indicating that young Samira was among those killed.

Condolences messages, along with several pictures honoring the victims, were posted on Facebook by various relatives and acquaintances, including Samira’s cousin, Asmaa Alfarra, and her nephew, Yehia Alagha; Abrahim’s cousin, Mohammed Shoaib Farra; a close friend who referred to him as his “beloved brother”, Hasan Ouda; and his classmate, Abod Elregeb, who stated that his “wise friend” Ibrahim was “one of the best of His creations in morals and upbringing”. Tarek Alfarra and Yaser Mouaye Alfarra also documented the aftermath of the bombardment and shared photos taken during the al-Farra’s family members’ funeral on Facebook.

Where sources identified the belligerent, all sources attributed the strikes to Israeli forces. According to testimonies posted on Twitter/X and Facebook by @DrWhotreatsman and Jomaa Alfarra, respectively, the al-Farra’s residence was destroyed “without warning”.

Where possible, names have been matched with the Palestinian Ministry of Health list of fatalities in Gaza released on October 26th, 2023.

According to a Facebook post by the Association of the al-Ghalban Family’s Sons, some of the victims were still undergoing treatment in the hospital, while others had returned after receiving first aid. This post, along with another from Families of Ma’an and eastern Khan Younis, featured pictures documenting the ‘massive destruction’ resulting from the bombardment.

Airwars assessment

Around 5 AM on Friday, October 20, 2023, an alleged Israeli airstrike hit a home belonging to the journalist Rami Khreis located in the al-Amal neighborhood, west of the town of Khan Yunis in the Gaza Strip, reportedly killing his seven-year old son Abdul Rahman Rami Mahmoud Khreis, and injuring 12 family members, including his Rami’s wife. 

Most local sources named Abdul Rahman as the only deceased victim, but Alsharq News Palestine reported about “two martyrs” from the strike. A journalist Adel Zaroub mentioned a “female martyr” in the Khreis family home, so the maximum death toll may reach two civilians.

Most sources reported that “injuries” occurred as a result of the strike. A Facebook user Alaa Jamal said that his uncle’s home was hit in the strike and that “all of them [were] injured.” The Awda Alfada’iyye Channel offered a precise figure of 12 injured family members, noting that they were brought to Al-Nasser hospital. The Palestinian Information Center identified Rami Khreis’ wife as among those injured.

Friends and loved ones offered condolences to the family of the killed boy. Abdul’s uncle Atef Al-Namrouti posted a photo of a small child making the peace sign with a pet bird perched on his shoulder. “My nephew, Abd al-Rahman Rami Khreis,” said Al-Namrouti. “A martyr and a bird of paradise with God’s praise.”

A Facebook user named Diaa Momar, who appears to live near the family, lamented the death of “the good and decent neighbor’s son,” sharing a picture of the slain child. She also posted photos of what appear to be a little girls room with a window blown out, possibly the damage to her own home from the nearby bombing.

Several other sources posted similar graphic pictures of the dead boy, wearing a yellow t-shirt in a body bag and his corpse being carried on a stretcher in others.

Abdul Rahman’s name has been matched with the Palestinian Ministry of Health list of fatalities in Gaza released on October 26th, 2023.

Where sources identified the belligerent, all sources attributed the strikes to Israeli forces.

Airwars assessment

Around 12:00 in the afternoon on Friday, October 20th 2023, an alleged Israeli airstrike on a car carrying farmers in the Abasan Al-Kabira area in the town of Khan Yunis reportedly killed three civilians, all of them men.

Shehab agency and other news agencies reported on the incident, and journalist Ahmad Qudeih provided the names of the victims killed in the airstrike: 34 year old Muhammad Ayman Abu Draz, 23 year old Ahmed Ammar Al-Shawaf, and 30 year old Muhammad Jamil Abu Draz. The Eastern Pulse posted images and video of their funeral on Facebook.

Muhammad Ayman Abu Draz was survived by his wife Dina, and was mourned by his wife’s aunt Umm Mohammad Qudeih, his cousin Abu Ahmad Al-Shawaf and his wife’s brother Asaad Qouadh. Asaad remembered the late Muhammad as “the respected man, beloved by everyone who knew him.” A Facebook user Alwaa Sport wrote that Muhammad was a “beloved childhood friend.” Alwaa Sport, the Big Absan, and the Eastern Pulse shared his images where he appeared as a young man in his 30s.

Muhammad Jamil Abu Daraz was remembered in a Facebook tribute by the Eastern Pulse where he can be seen in the attached image as a young man in a white shirt. Imad Husein Abu Daraz shared his grief about the loss of Muhammad, having written his memories about him: “Whenever I was confused about something or unable to do something, I would not think of anyone around me as much as you. I bear witness to God that you are a man and one who speaks the truth.”

Ahmed Ammar Al-Shawaf was praised as “the good cousin and neighbor” in a Facebook testimony by Ahmed Zhra. He is seen in the attached image as a young bearded man. Also Ahmad Al-Shawaf shared the image of the late Ahmed where he was wearing a black cap.

All names have been matched with the Palestinian Ministry of Health list of fatalities in Gaza released on October 26th, 2023.

Airwars assessment

Around 5pm on Friday October 20th 2023, an alleged Israeli airstrike on the Al-Aqad family house located near the European Hospital in the Al-Manara neighborhood south to the town of Khan Yunis killed a Palestinian poet and novelist Heba (Hiba) Kamal Saleh Abu Nada alongside her son and ten identified members of the Al-Aqad family, the majority of whom were women and children, among them one infant, and at least six others were wounded.

Initially Shehab Agency correspondent reported about five civilians killed in the strike and a number of wounded and missing ones, but later Alqhad.tv, Almayadeen.net and Watan news reported that the death toll rose to seven. Alqhad.tv also mentioned that six people were injured, with Almayadeen.net mentioning that “children” were among the injured.

The Facebook testimony by Ahmed Ismael Al-Akkad helped to identify ten members of the Al-Aqad family who were killed in the strike alongside the poet and novelist Hiba Abu Nada who apparently had been displaced and had been staying in that house as a guest together with her son who had also been reportedly killed. Thus, the number of the victims killed in the attack reached twelve people.

A 52-year old woman Nahed Qasim Abdullah Al-Aqad Safi was killed alongside her son, her two daughters, her sister, and her grandchildren. It was written in Alakaad Family Pace post that she was a widow of Yahya Muhammad Abdullah Al-Aqqad “Abu Al-Nour” who was called a “martyr”. Nahed’s son, a 29-year old Muhammad Yahya Abdel al-Aqad was killed alongside his wife, a 23-year old Deena Dhafer Hamdi Al-Aqad, and their daughter Nevin Muhammad Yahya Al-Aqad who was only one year and three months old when she was killed. Nahed’s 33-year old daughter Nevin Yahya Muhammad Al-Aqad lost her life together with her son 13 year old Ahmed Salah Selim and her 25-year old sister Nidaa Yahya Muhammad Al-Aqad.

Nahed’s 27-year old sister Reham Mahmoud Qasim Al-Aqad Safi was killed alongside her 5-year old son Yahya Nour El-Din Yahya Al-Aqad and her infant son Muhammad Nour al-Din Yahya al-Aqad who was only two months old.

A Facebook post by Alakaad Family Pace contained images of the corpses of the family members wrapped in cloth as well as a graphic image of a dead woman embracing her dead child entitled “Eternal sleep”. A Twitter/X user @Mustafa3Ahed shared a graphic image of a dead body of an infant arriving to the morgue after the airstrike on Al-Aqad family house.

As mentioned above, among the victims was a Palestinian poet and writer Hiba (Heba) Abu Nada who was killed with her son. The Palestinian Ministry of Culture published an official condolence statement dedicated to her, describing the deceased woman as  “a creative writer who wrote stories, novels, and poetry.”

The 32-year-old Hiba Abu Nada was born in 1991 in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, to a Palestinian family from the village of Beit Jarjah. She studied biochemistry and educational rehabilitation, worked in education and won several awards for her writing. Abu Nada published collections of poetry and a novel “Oxygen is Not for the Dead” which won second place at the Sharjah Awards for Arab creativity in 2017.

Her last poem was published on the social platform X/Twitter just a few days before her death:

“Gaza’s night is dark apart from the glow of rockets,

quiet apart from the sound of the bombs,

terrifying apart from the comfort of prayer,

black apart from the light of the martyrs.

Good night, Gaza”

The legacy of Hiba Abu Nada was mentioned in an article by the British media outlet The Guardian which emphasized that before the war, Gaza had a “huge arts community”, that was now being destroyed by the war. Images of the late Hiba published by The Guardian and social media accounts show a young woman in a beige and red hijab.

Her friend Mohammad Ziyad Shawdab shared an image of her holding a book, and wrote about his loss: “My friend, the novelist, poet, and human being Heba Abu Nada rises as a martyr from the Al-Aqsa Flood. They were difficult days, Heba. You told us the story as best you could. Go up to Gaza, the sky.”

Where possible, names have been matched with the Palestinian Ministry of Health list of fatalities in Gaza released on October 26th, 2023.

Where sources identified the belligerent, all sources attributed the strikes to Israeli forces.
