Airwars assessment

On Tuesday, December 5th, 2023, an Israeli aircraft allegedly bombed the Abu Musabbeh family home containing a bakery located on Abu Hosni Street, in Deir al-Balah, central Gaza Strip, reportedly flattening it to the ground. According to publicly available accounts, this resulted in the deaths of at least 30 and up to more than 50 family members, and caused dozens to be wounded, including children. Among the injured civilians was an infant girl named Layan Abu Musabbeh whose entire family was reportedly killed in the strike.

Numerous photographs of bodies allegedly being recovered from the site of this bombing were published by MSDR News. Similarly, the radio station Mazaya Fm shared images showing members of the public and Red Crescent recovering bodies from the location. Anadolu News Agency cited the mayor of Deir al-Balah, Diab al-Jarro, who reportedly stated that around 50 civilians were killed in the house of Abu Musabbeh family, and the majority of those killed were displaced people seeking refuge in Deir al-Balah from other areas within the Gaza Strip, including Gaza City. The agency also reported that 50 fatalities resulting from the airstrike were buried in a mass grave because, according to Diab al-Jarro, the existing cemeteries were no longer adequate to accommodate the substantial number of the deceased. The lowest death count was provided by @adham922 which identified 30 people killed, “all of them children, women and innocent civilians” while the highest death count of “over 50” victims was documented by @QudsNen.

According to Aljazeera, the dead and wounded were taken to Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital in Deir Al-Balah. The official Twitter/X account of the Palestinian mission to the UK shared the heart-wrenching images of the funeral of at least 45 members of Abu Musabbeh family where a crying woman was embracing a dead body of her relative wrapped in white cloth.

In its Twitter/X account, Al Mayadeen News alluded to why the alleged bombing of this site caused such a high number of purported casualties, stating “A new massacre in #Deir_Al-Balah after the occupation targeted the home of the Abu Musabah family, which contained a clay bakery, around which people gathered to get a piece of bread.”

In its coverage of this event, Al Jazeera posted a graphic video on Twitter/X purportedly filmed at the scene by a Palestinian journalist. The video shows the rubble left from the building, flames of fire and people carrying numerous bodies of the dead and injured civilians. An injured man and an injured crying boy are also visible. According to Al Jazeera Mubasher, limited supplies of medical resources complicated efforts to tend to the wounded. On this, the outlet stated, “It was documented that the wounded continued to arrive at the hospital, with a shortage in all hospitals in the Gaza Strip and a shortage of medical supplies.”

At present, Mohammad Kamal Abu Musabbeh has been named as among the deceased. Condolence posts on social media were numerous. A friend of Mohammad Musabbeh, Muhammad al-Safir, described his last moments before the strike. The two had hugged only seven minutes before the explosion, and al-Safir remembered Musabbeh saying he was tired but that still he “smiled at me and said, I swear I love you.” Had he known this would have been the last time the two saw each other, al-Safir said, he would have “prolonged the hug.” From the attached image the late Mohammad appears as a smiling young bearded man.

A little girl, Talia Khattab, was also killed in the strike. A committed student, Talia was remembered for her diligence to her schooling. Eager for the war to end, Talia reportedly told her grandfather: “Tomorrow everything will be over grandpa, I will go to kindergarten and get the highest grades.”

Whilst describing how this incident orphaned an infant girl Layan Abu Musabbeh to the news outlet Al Watan, a relative Muhammad Abu Musabbeh said that the explosion threw her and her bed into one of the neighbors’ houses. He also described the aftermath of the bombing stating that, “The scene we saw cannot be described. We heard a loud explosion, so we quickly left the house. I was surprised that it was the house of my cousin and his family. The scene was horrific, fires burning in the house.”  Abu Musabbeh also said that they were searching for the child for several hours, and “almost lost hope, until one of the neighbors heard the sound of a child crying, and upon tracing the source of the sound, we found that she had flown away.”

A Twitter/X user @monther_khaled posted a video showing the infant Layan wrapped in green cloth.

Where sources identified the belligerent, all sources attributed the strikes to Israeli forces. At least one source, @rdooan, referenced the bombing as being carried out by “American weapons”.

Location

مخبز النصيرات وسط قطاع غزة, The al Nuseirat automated bakery “Al-Banna” in the center of Suf al-Nuseirat in central Gaza strip, Central Gaza, the Gaza Strip

Airwars assessment

At 1:34 AM on Wednesday October 18th 2023, at least three young civilian men, including the owner of a bakery, were reported killed and at least 10 others were injured in an alleged Israeli airstrike on the al Nuseirat automated bakery “Al-Banna”  located in the center of Suf al-Nuseirat in the central Gaza strip. Orient News and Araby TV reported that the bakery was considered one of the largest in Gaza and provided bread to a large number of Palestinians, including the displaced people and residents of the al-Nuseirat refugee camp.

Friends, relatives and local sources on social media shared the names of the victims killed – the owner of the al Nuseirat bakery 46-year old Mukhlis al-Zari’i (Abu Iyad), a 24-year old man Ahmed Zaher al-Banna, and a 26-year old man Suhaib Muhammad Wasfi al-Banna.

Shehab Agency initially reported on the death of two civilians in the bombing. It later wrote that the number of civilians killed “has risen to 3.” Al Mayadeen News and sources on social media noted that the Al-Banna bakery was bombed while its workers were still inside, with some sources, including Quds News, adding that the bakery was completely destroyed. Euro News and al Hadath shared videos of the fiery deluge that enveloped the bombed structure.

A Twitter/X user @AboodEmad__ said that the bakery was “the best bakery we use in this situation because it is faster than other bakeries, and even though there are queues and turns, it alleviates the crisis a little,” sharing an image of the completely destroyed building with only its sign intact. A Facebook user Mar’i Bashir said that “even the bakery where I feed people bread with the remaining flour they bombed until we died of hunger”.

Roaamedia reported on “a number of martyrs and wounded” arriving at the al-Aqsa hospital. The AWDA Health Committee shared images of the injured being taken within the hospital, saying “the arrival of one martyr and ten injuries as a result of the bombing.” Sources did not provide details for those injured in the bombing.

Mukhlis al-Zari’i (Abu Iyad) was remembered in a Facebook tribute by the radio station “Voice of the Nation” (WA105FM) as “the good man”. He is seen on the attached image as a smiling bearded young man with a portrait of Yasser Arafat behind him. Khamis Khuseyn (Abu al’-Abd) and other Facebook users shared an image of the other victim, Ahmed Zahir Al-Banna – a young bearded man in an elegant suit and red tie. The death of Suhaib Muhammad Wasfi al-Banna was also mourned by his many friends who shared images of a young smiling bearded man.

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

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

Airwars assessment

On Sunday, October 15th 2023, four members of the Awaja family were killed, and at least five others, including at least three children, were injured in an alleged Israeli airstrike on a house belonging to the Awaja family on First Street near Al-Asmar Supermarket, in the Tal al-Sultan neighborhood west of the city of Rafah, south of the Gaza Strip.

Safa news and Palestine press reported that “A house for the Awaja family in the Tal Al-Sultan neighborhood in Rafah” was bombed, while sources on social media included further details mentioning that the home was located on First Street near Al-Asmar Supermarket, and belonged to Lal Awaja, without specifying if he was among the casualties. Twitter user Hamza al Namla included a video showing rescue efforts at a heavily damaged building, allegedly the bombed home.

Local media including Safa and Shehab Agency reported on the death of two women in the bombing, with Shehab also reporting a total of four deaths and a “large number of injuries” as having been recovered, which was corroborated by the Palestinian Information Center, Wattan, Nabad and New Press. Hani Alshaer, a source online, specified five civilians were injured in the attack, while Muhammad al-Jamal mentioned the names of the two women killed, saying “the martyrdom of two girls, Heba Nafez al-Hams and Shaima Ali Awaja.” Multiple sources on local and social media including the Palestinian Information Center, Shehab Agency, Quds, and al Jazeera shared heartbreaking images of at least three heavily injured young children being treated in a hospital, stating “Children receiving primary care at Al-Najjar Hospital in Rafah following the bombing of a Palestinian family’s home in the Tal Al-Sultan neighborhood.” Sources do not mention the ages of the children, or their relationship to the Awaja family.

Relatives and friends of the Awaja family mourned the deaths on social media, with Basma Ibrahim and Rona Nayef Ali offering condolences to their friend Dina for the death of her unnamed mother, and the the deaths of her sister-in-law Heba Nafez al-Hams, her aunt Ibtisam Awaja, and Ibtisam’s daughter Shaima Awaja. Sources refer to Heba’s husband Muhammad Awaja as a martyr, indicating that he was killed in a previous incident.

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

Where sources identified a belligerent, they attributed the strike to Israeli forces.

Airwars assessment

On October 14th 2023, between one and three civilians were reportedly killed and at least one was injured in an alleged Israeli airstrike on the Al Shaf’i family house in Al Nusayrat camp.

There is mixed reporting on the number of civilians killed in the airstrike, with Wattan News providing the lowest death toll of one killed, whilst @GNNANOW reported three. Sputnik Arabic did not specify how many deaths, but directly referenced “a number of women and children” were killed.

@ShebabAgency, which reported on the residential airstrike, indicated that the incident led to injuries. Ambulances transported the injured to Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital, with a post by user Aida Muhammad noting that “most of the bodies of the martyrs are body parts”. A post from Osama Al-Kahlot also referred to “a number of serious injuries” arriving at the hospital. Wattan News was the only source to specify that one person was injured, in addition to the one death.

While all sources referred to the bombing as occurring in Nusayrat camp, some sources referred to the strike as occurring at a house for the Al-Shafi’i family while others mentioned “the Nusayrat camp market” as the location of the strike.

Where sources identified the belligerent, all sources attributed the strikes to Israeli forces. Sputnik Arabic specified that the strike occurred “without warning”.

Airwars assessment

In the afternoon of Tuesday, October 10th 2023, the Marouf family house located behind Al-Rayes School and near Al-Julani Mosque in Al-Tuffah neighborhood in Gaza City was allegedly hit by an Israeli bombing that reportedly killed between two and three family members, including one woman. Seven civilians were pulled alive from the rubble while some were reported missing.

According to the tributes published in social media, the deadly attack took the lives of 54 year old Imad Muhammad Marouf (Abu Ashraf) and his wife 50 year old Nazek Noman Marouf. In a Facebook condolence message by the Abu Amsha Family, the late Imad Marouf is seen in the image as an elderly man in a white striped shirt. Al.marouf.gaza Facebook account also paid tribute to the memory of the couple: “The family of Marouf and Abu Amsha in the homeland and the diaspora mourns the heroic martyr, the son of the family (Imad Muhammad Marouf – Abu Ashraf) and the martyr, his wife (Nazek Noman Marouf).” The identity of the third victim killed in the attack was not provided.

According to a Facebook user Manal Ouda, four floors of the building were completely destroyed in the attack, including a manned fruit and vegetable shop with the shop owner, his nephew, and a number of customers inside. He wrote further: “Civil Defense is present, but the building has been destroyed 5 hours ago, and until now we do not know if they [inhabitants] are alive or dead. There are people who say I heard their voice, and there are people who say there is no voice.”

Twitter/ X user @_alshrafi reported that “after recovering three martyrs and removing seven alive from the house of our neighbors, the Marouf family, bulldozers are still working until this moment to extract those missing from the rubble of the house.”

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

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

Airwars assessment

On October 9, 2023, an alleged Israeli airstrike on/near a market in Jabalia refugee camp resulted in between 50 and 69 civilians killed, including at least 15 children and six women, and “hundreds” of wounded.

A tweet from Al Jazeera Mubasher News (@ajmubasher) reported that “at least 50 were killed in a new Israeli bombardment that targeted a densely populated residential neighborhood” with dozens of missiles. Multiple sources refer to the incident as a massacre and describe it “as if an earthquake occurred here.” Ilyass elmaliki news posted on Facebook that the home of “Abu Ashkian” was bombed and the result was “dozens” of killed and “hundreds” of wounded. Defense for Children International (DCI) reported that 15 children were among those killed in Jabalia, with a note that the number of children killed was expected to rise to 17 after verification of two additional young victims.

An Amnesty International report included details that at around 10:30am, Israeli airstrikes hit a market in Jabalia refugee camp, killing at least 69 people. Amnesty referred to the market as “one of the busiest commercial areas in northern Gaza” and added that the market was busier than usual because of people fleeing their homes after being told to by the Israeli military.

Amnesty said that the Israeli military reported they were targeting “a mosque in which Hamas members had been present” but no mosque was found in the immediate vicinity of the market. The Israeli military reported on the same day targeting an “an Islamic Jihad command center located inside a mosque,” though it did not state where it was.

A post from HedeebRadwan9 named Youssef Rabaa as among those killed, and Ansam Ahmed identified Youssef as their cousin, adding that their nephew Muhammad Fares Rabaa and his brother Yazan Fares Rabaa (eight years old) were also killed (all seem to be children in images).

Al Kurdi family in Gaza posted that Thaer Talal Ramadan Murad Al-Kurdi and Ezzedine Yasser Ramadan Murad Al-Kurdi were both killed, and both were referred to as the sons of Murad Al-Kurdi. Kamal Abo Mohammed named “the struggling and friendly brother” Mahmoud Al-Sidawi as killed. Hasan louqa identified Mohammed Khalid as killed and Abo Khaled Al Lino identified their cousin Ahmed Moein Wahdan as killed.

Classmate and friend @KhaderA7med reported that Doctor Saed Maher Darabiya was killed in the Jabalia “massacre,” describing him as gentle and close to people. The Ministry of Health of Gaza also posted a statement mourning Doctor Saed and the Undersecretary of the Ministry of Health, Dr. Youssef Abu Al-Rish performed the funeral prayer for Doctor Saed at Al-Shifa Hospital.

A Facebook post from Ahmad Idris Aouda reported that Mustafa Salah Abu Shakyan, a master’s student in the “Noble Hadith and its Sciences at the Faculty of Fundamentals of Religion,” was also killed. Inas Khalil posted that their friend Aisha Hameed (Abu Shakyan) and her daughters were killed. Mahmoud Abu Alfahem posted that Islam Salah Abu Shakyan and her children Anas Nasser Abu Al-Fahm (four years old) and Layan Nasser Abu Al-Fahm (eight years old) were also killed. Amani Rayan posted that their sixth grade teacher Mr. Ibrahim Al-Tatri Abu Muhammad was among those killed. Hasan Adel posted that their aunt Etaf Abu Shakyan (Umm Abdullah), her children, her children’s wives, and her grandchildren were all killed.

Mohammed Shehab’s uncle Mustafa Hussein Abu Al-Eish and his sons Ahmed and Abdullah (14 years old) were killed, according to their Facebook post. Abo Khaled Al Lenoi posted that their cousin Daoud Sami Wahdan, who was an only child, was killed. Wasem Musleh identified their cousin Khaled Musleh as one of those killed.

A post by Wael Qatash stated that their wife’s cousin Alaa Atta Al-Sheikh was killed, along with “her children, her husband, her aunt, her children, her husband, and their wives, since there is no one left of the family.” Walaa Al Sheikh, brother of Alaa, provided additional details of her husband Abdullah Abu Ashkian, and their three daughters, Jannah (10 years old), Joudi, and Jouri (five years old). DCI-Palestine identified cousins of the three daughters Maria Huthaifa Salah Abu Shukian (three years old), and Retal Bilal Salah Abu Shukian (seven years old) as also killed. The brother of Alaa also identified his aunt Umm Abdullah, her children, and her son’s wives as among those killed.

Mahmoud Sadat identified their cousins Muhammad Nabil Saadat and Ismail Nabil Saadat as among those killed. Google Market International Trade Company posted a statement mourning the death of Tariq Hajjaj, indicating that he was an employee.

Um Asil Qadourah posted on Facebook that their sister’s husband Thaer Saadi Abu Odeh and his son Ali Thaer Saadi Abu Odeh (a child) were killed, and that there was no trace of the son’s body following the attack. A post from ِthe Abo Odah family in Beit Hanoun added that Hudhayfah Arif Ali Abdulaziz Abu Odeh, Anas Ahmed Abdel Aziz Abu Odeh, and the child Muhammad Anas Musa Sheikh Abdullah Abu Odeh (nine years old) were also killed.

Majed Okasha identified the members of the Al-Zwaidi family who were killed, describing it as a “massacre”: Adham Amin Muhammad Al-Zwaidi (father, 55 years old), Hussein Al-Zwaidi (mother, 51 years old), Muhammad Adham Amin Al-Zwaidi (33 years old), Mr. Imad Adham Amin Al-Zwaidi (28 years old), Amin Adham Amin Al-Zwaidi (17 years old), Hussein Adham Amin Al-Zwaidi (13 years old), Ghadeer Adham Amin Al-Zwaidi.

Amnesty International reported that Imad Ziyad Hamad was killed while he was on his way to buy bread and mattresses for his family. According to his father Ziyad Hamad, the family had left their home in Beit Hanlon after receiving a warning from the Israeli army and had walked almost five kilometers to a UNRWA-run school in Jabalia camp. When Ziyad arrived at the morgue for his son’s body, “The bodies were burned, I was scared of looking. I didn’t want to look, I was scared of looking at Imad’s face. The bodies were scattered on the floor. Everyone was looking for their children in these piles. I recognized my son only by his trousers. I wanted to bury him immediately, so I carried my son and got him out. I carried him.” Ziyad later told Amnesty “What did I do to deserve this? To lose my son, to lose my house, to sleep on the floor of a classroom? My children are wetting themselves, of panic, of fear, of cold. We have nothing to do with this. What fault did we commit? I raised my child, my entire life, for what? To see him die while buying bread.”

DCI-Palestinian identified the names of additional children killed in the incident: Diab Mohammad Diab Abu Baid, six years old; Yousef Sameer Ramadan Al-Athamneh, 10 years old; Mohammad Imad Ebrek Al-Amouri, nine years old; Mohammad Bajes Hassan Al-Khaldi, 11 years old.

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

Airwars assessment

On the morning of Thursday, October 5, 2023, in a town of Jisr Al Shughour located west of Idlib, Syria, artillery bombardement with contested responsibility — reportedly by the Syrian regime forces and/or the Russian military — struck the city’s popular market and residential neighborhoods, killing at least one child and injuring at least 12 civilians.

While most reports indicated a single fatality, a child named Ghaith Abdulkhalek Shaeen, one source claimed a total of three deaths, including a man and two children, as reported by a local journalist via his Twitter account @Zelal_katee, accompanied by a video. These casualties, however, were unnamed by this source and unverified by others. A Twitter/X user @pvSScBsybeozsB8 shared an image of a young smiling boy identified as Ghaith Shaeen who was killed in the strike.

The count of civilian injuries was also disputed, with a minimum of six reported injuries contrasting with a list of 12 named individuals injured, shared by the Jisr al-Shughur Media Center. Although the media center did not confirm that those listed were civilians, all other reports consistently identified the injured as such.

The names of the injured civilians are Fatma Hajjar, Mohammed Thabet Halib,Khitam Hasnawi, Ahmad Al Khalif, Raji Abdulrahim, Abdulrazek Saleh, Nour Al Thaher, Mahmoud Khateeb,  Mohammed Duwairi, Hamoud Dali, Ahmad Al Munir, and Khlail Malandi.

Jisr media center Facebook account and other local sources shared images of the clouds arising after the bombardement and of vehicles being on fire. Orient News tweeted a video showing painful scenes, panic and fear in the city after the strike. Syrian news agency SANA’s Twitter/X account shared the images of the firefighters trying to extinguish the fire that had broke out after the strike. Al Arabiya Syria Facebook account posted the images showing the aftermath of the bombardment –  holes in buldings’ walls, rubble and a burnt car.

While the majority of sources attributed the attack to Syrian regime forces, Twitter/X account @mzmgr941 held the Russian military responsible for the strike.

The incident occured in the morning.

Airwars assessment

Between 6 and 11 civilians were killed and 30 to 61 others, including at least 2 children, were injured by alleged Russian airstrikes on Jisr Al Shoughar on June 25, 2023.

@SyriaCivilDefe initially reported the casualty toll as five civilians killed and more than 20 injured but later tweeted that the death toll had risen to nine civilians killed and more than 30 injured, including serious cases and later in the day reached 61 wounded, including children. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also reported that nine people were killed, but identified six civilians and three combatants among the total number. Aljazeera put the number of wounded at more than 34 while a tweet from @Omar_Madaniah reported that 11 civilians were killed in the marketplace airstrikes.

Jisr Al Shughour media office published the names of the victims on Facebook. Here are the names of the injured who arrived at Jisr Hospital: Omar Kurdi, Abdul Mohsen Kurdi, Othman Al-Faraj, Adel Alloush, Bashar Ali Al-Hassan, Hussein Al Jamil, Hassan Sam’ou , Faris Alloush, Asaad Al-Hussein, Alloush Alloush, Mamoun Ahmed Khalif, Ibrahim Al-Hajji, Ibrahim Qassem, Abdul Razzaq Ahmed Turkawi, Ahmed Abdul Razzaq Turkawi, Hussein Al-Sayed, Muhammad hijazzi, Ali Ibrahim Amouri, Mohammed al-Hussein, Rashid Fadel, Zakaria Turkestani, Khaled Alloush, Ahmed Abdullah Hussein, Hassan Ahmed Hassan, Hossam Hussein Muhaimid, Marwan Khaled Al-Alewi, Faraj Hassan Al-Hajji, Ayman Raslan, Adnan Muhammed Sharif, Fares Rahil. Here are two of those killed: Khaled Al-Hajji, Sumer Khalil.

Orient News and various other sources mentioned that most of the victims were farmers or vendors.

@SyriaCivilDefe added that some of the victims were taken to Al-Qunya Hospital, and images show adults and children being treated for their wounds.

Aljazeera quoted Reda Hayshid, a 21-year-old vegetable vendor who said that “During our work today at the vegetable market, we were startled by an air strike that targeted the market where we were present, turning [it] into a pool of blood and the remains of victims. The scenes of my friends whom I used to see daily in this market continue to haunt my imagination as some of them were taking their last breaths, while others have lost their limbs due to the air strike.”

Aljazeera also quoted Rami Jaafar, who was buying groceries at the market 10 minutes before the bombing and rushed back to check on his relatives who were working in the market: “On my way back home with my family, we heard the sound of an explosion coming from the direction of the vegetable market. I quickly secured my family in one of the houses in Jisr al-Shughour and rushed to the market to check on my cousins who were there. The place was filled with dust, the smell of blood and gunpowder permeating the air. There was no sound except for the moans of the wounded and the ambulances that transported my cousins to the hospital.”

Saad Fato, a 35-year-old labourer who survived the strike on the market, told AFP (quoted by The National) that he helped efforts to try to rescue the wounded. He was unloading tomatoes and cucumbers at the time of the attack, describing the aftermath as “It was indescribable, seeing the dead, the wounded.”

Local sources identified the location of the strikes as al-Hal market, also known as the tomato market, a fruit and vegetable market on the outskirts of the city of Jisr Al Shoughar. Sham News specified that the market is located near the sugar factory, east of the city of Jisr Al Shoughar. Local vendor Reda Hayshid told Aljazeera that the market is considered a central one for most farmers in the area and in its outskirts to sell their produce daily.

All of the sources attributed the airstrikes to Russian forces, and Aljazeera specified that a Russian Su-34 carried out the airstrikes on Jisr Al Shoughar and Yeni Safak quoted information from the Syrian opposition flight control observatory in Idlib which reported that three Russian planes took off from Hmeimim Airport in Latakia Governorate at 10:03 local time.

North Press Agency reported that in the aftermath, more than 50 families fled Jisr Al Shoughar due to fear from the repeated airstrikes.

The incident occured at 10:08:00 local time.
