Airwars assessment

At least 15 people, including six children, were killed and at least three other children were injured by an alleged Israeli airstrike which hit the Abu Jabara residence in the Bureij camp at dawn on October 13th, 2023.

The Abu Jabara Facebook page initially reported that nine members of the Abu Jabara family were killed while another post reported “Martyrs and injuries”. A post from Sadiq Abu Jabara put the number killed at 12, and provided the names: 41 year old Ali Jihad Ali Abu Jabara, 33 year old Khaled Jihad Ali Abu Jabara, his three sons 5 year old Safaa Khaled Abu Jabara,1 year old Sarah Khaled Abu Jabara, and Osama Khaled Abu Jabara. Reem Raafat Abu Jabara, Jihad Ahmed Abu Jabara, Zaid Ahmed Abu Jabara, 20 year old Jihad Basil Jihad Abu Jabara, 18 year old Alaa Basil Jihad Abu Jabara, 14 year old Lina Basil Jihad Abu Jabara, 31 year old Waseem Abu Jabbara were also listed amongst those killed. A post from Khamis Hussein added the name Yazan Ahmed Abu Jubara and identified Ahmed Abu Jabara’s wife as among those killed. Firas Abu Jubara also added that his aunt, Ohood Abu Jabara (Umm Ahmed), wife of the late Kamal Abu Jabara, was among those killed, adding that she would be buried in the Sahab Cemetery after noon prayers October 14th at the Sahab Cemetery Mosque.

Walid Moamer reported that Ahmed Abu Jabara’s father and two brothers were killed in the 2008 war, and he has been living in Poland since 2009. Ahmed Abu Jabara posted on Facebook that “All my family are martyrs, my brothers, their spouses, their children, and my wife and my children are martyrs…” Based on the names, it seems likely that Ahmed’s children who were killed are 5 year old Jihad Ahmed Abu Jabara and 3 year old Zaid Ahmed Abu Jabara, while Ahmed’s wife’s name was not found among the sources.

A Facebook post from Abu Ihab Jabara referred to Waseem Abu Jabara as “The knight, my cousin and the apple of my eye”.

Images posted by Al Khalil show three children being treated for their injuries in a hospital.

A post from Ibrahim Al-Hajj identified the location of the strike as around the Martyrs’ Roundabout, adding that there was an appeal for first aid to arrive to help the victims.

Safa PS reported that no warning was given prior to the strike. Where sources identified a belligerent, all sources attributed the strike to Israeli forces.

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

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

On Friday, October 13th 2023, at least 14 civilians were killed, all members of the Abu-Lashin family, including at least two women and at least five children and an infant, as a result of an alleged Israeli airstrike on the Abu Lashin family’s home in the Bureij camp. According to Safa news, the attack happened without prior warning.

According to a Facebook post by a family relative Talat abu Lasheen who lost his siblings with their children in the attack, the overall number of the deceased family members was 16. Fares Abu Lasheen also shared a tribute on Facebook to his family members:  “I swear to God, the 16 martyr of Al-Khobar broke our hearts”. The testimonies by family relatives and friends helped Airwars identify 14 victims killed in the strike.

A 48-year old Mohammed Subhi Abu-Lashin (Abu Muhannad)  was killed alongside his five children, namely, three sons: a 20-year old son Muhanad Mohammad Subhi Abu-Lashin, a 19-year old son Subhi Mohammed Subhi Abu-Lashin, and a 16-year old Mohammed Mohammed Subhi Abu-Lashin, and two daughters: a 13-year old Tala Mohammed Subi Abu-Lashin and a 4-year old Leyan Mohammed Subi Abu-Lashin.

In a Facebook testimony by Saeed Salem, the late Mohammed Abu-Lashin is seen in the picture as a smiling middle-aged man in a Reebok T-shirt. Radwan Al-Lulu paid a tribute to Mohammed Abu-Lashin in his post, having said that  “You have hurt our hearts, Muhammad Abu Lashin Abu Muhannad. May God have mercy on you and accept you”. A Facebook account of Bureij also mourned the death of Mohammed and his family: “The rise of one of the moons of the precious tower/ Muhammad Abu Lashin with his family”, having attached the image of Muhammad Abu Lashin in a yellow T-shirt and orange jacket. His children Mohammad, Tala and Leyan were remembered in a post by Abu Udai Abu Lasheen.

Another family member, a 55-year old Maher Subhi Mohammed Abu-Lashin who was apparently a brother of Mohammed Abu-Lashin was killed alongside his three children – a 22-year old son Alaa Al-Din Maher Sabehe Abu-Lashin, a 28-year old son Asaad (Usaid) Maher Subhi Abu Lashin and a 19-year old daughter Mariam Maher Sabhi Abu-Lashin.

A 28-year old Asaad Abu-Lashin lost his life alongside the lives of his 28-year-old wife Tahani Mohammed Al-Bardawil (Abu-Lashin) and their children – a 5-year old son Maher Asaad Abu-Lashin, a daughter Judi Asaad Maher Abu-Lashin whose age is unknown, and an infant daughter Ghazal Asaad Maher Abu-Lashin. A Facebook user Naser Abu Abdullah shared a video featuring the late Asaad, a smiling bearded young man, with his son and an infant daughter. Ghalak min ghala roohi also shared the images of Asaad and his children on Facebook, saying “May God have mercy on you, the joy of my heart, you, your children, and your wife.”

A friend of the late Tahani, Reema A Matar, expressed in a touching tribute her grief and despair: “My love, Toto, I was still talking to you yesterday🥺 You were still telling me yesterday that you couldn’t believe that your aunt and her daughters were gone! You went to them, my love, and took them to heaven 💔”.

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 Friday October 13th, 2023, a declared Israeli airstrike reportedly killed a company commander in Hamas’ “Nukhba” commando force named Ali al-Qadi together with his wife and their five children in their home in Gaza, allegedly without prior warning.

The attack took the lives of Ali al-Qadi’s wife Sajida Abu Hayya and their five sons: Muhammad Ali al-Qadi, Sajid Ali al-Qadi, Abdul Aziz Ali al-Qadi, Yahya Ali al-Qadi, and Omar Ali al-Qadi. Initially Ramallah News reported the death of four children and a serious injury of a fifth child, but most sources later spoke about the death of five children.

The airstrike that killed Ali al-Qadi was confirmed by the Israeli military. The IDF (Israel Defense Forces) wrote on its website: ”Based on precise IDF and ISA intelligence, IDF aircraft neutralized Ali Qadi, a company commander in Hamas’ “Nukhba” commando force, who led the brutal terror attack against Israeli communities near the Gaza Strip last weekend (October 7th).“ The IDF posted a video which showed the moment the Israeli Military bombed the home of Ali al-Qadi.

Hespress also quoted an anonymous Hamas official who stated that the late Ali al-Qadi was indeed a militant, describing him as a field commander in the elite force of the Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Islamic Movement. However, there was no official comment on the death of Al al-Qadi from Hamas, as reported by Hespress.

Originally from Ramallah, Ali al-Qadi was imprisoned in 2005 and released in 2011 as part of an exchange deal for Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit. According to Israeli news website YnetNews, “Ali al-Qadhi was sentenced to life in prison for 2005 for kidnapping and murder of his employer.” After his release, Ali al-Qadi was deported to the Gaza Strip where he lived with his family until his killing on Friday October 13th, 2023. According to Ynet news, “he continued to engage in terrorism; Last Saturday [07/10/23], he commanded some of the terrorists who participated in Hamas’s murderous attack on Israeli border towns.”

The wider al-Qadi family and the people of Beit Nuba, the al-Qadi’s homeland, published a tribute on Facebook mourning the death of Ali al-Qadi, his wife Sajida Abu Hayya and their five children. The post read: “Today, the people of Beit Nuba, as they mourn the sons and wife of its mujahid and their liberated prisoner son, Ali, the judge deported to the Gaza Strip, also mourn all the sons of the Palestinian people who rose during the repulsion of the aggression (…) and will remain stubborn against his defeated forces.”

Al-Bireh Association also expressed its sympathy on Facebook for the wider al-Qadi family, adding that: “(…) Due to the circumstances the country is going through, the funeral will be held for one day today, Friday, at the Lifta Al-Bireh Association, near Al-Hayat newspaper, after Friday prayers”, and posted a picture of four of the sons of Ali.

A brother of the late Ali al-Qadi, Ayat Alqadi, posted his testimony, mourning the death of his brother’s wife and children and sharing the image of the five smiling sons of Ali, one of them still being an infant.

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.

Where sources identified the belligerent, all sources attributed the strikes to Israeli forces, and the Israeli military confirmed the strike that killed Ali al-Qadi and his family.

The exact time and location of the strike are unknown, but based on a Shehab agency tweet, the attack happened in the evening shortly before 11:36 PM.

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

On October 13th 2023, a young male civilian was killed in a bombing of the Al-Barawi family home located in Beit Lahia, Gaza Strip.

A post on social media from a relative, Wisam Al-Barawi, identified Mohammed Basem Al-Barawi as the civilian killed in the strike on Beit Lahia.

An image of the damaged house showing the collapse of the building was distributed on Facebook. It was also reported by local sources that no warning was provided before the strike.

None of the sources attributed the strike to a belligerent, therefore the strike status and civilian harm grading have been evaluated as contested.

Airwars was not able to match the named victim with the Palestinian Ministry of Health list of nearly 7000 victims’ names and ID numbers released on October 26th.

Airwars assessment

On Friday, 13 October 2023, five children from the Al-Astal family were killed and at least two others were injured in an alleged Israeli airstrike on the Astal family home opposite the Production Bank in Central Khan Yunis.

Sawaed Gaza reported that there was an “aerial bombardment near the homes of the Astal and Shaat families, opposite the Production Bank in Khan Yunis”, with Safa News reporting “Martyrs, missing persons, and injuries in the bombing”, and Al Jazeera adding “the martyrdom of a Palestinian baby and 4 women.”

Relatives of the family posted to social media that the home was bombed without warning, killing “a number of citizens and a number of injuries.” Nidal Mustafa al-Astal reported that four were killed, along with a “number of wounded.” Nabd al-Qarara reported on the death of two children, Joan Yahya Youssef al-Astal (5), and her younger sister Mian Yahya al-Astal (2 months), adding that their mother and brother were injured. The Astal family posted the names of the other victims – a 16 year old girl named Abeer Mahmoud Ahmed Ziyadi al-Astal, and 1 year old Janan Hamed Nasser al-Astal, adding that the funeral prayer would take place at 4:30 at the Austria Stadium. Sources on social media mourned the deaths, with Sliman al-Astal mentioning the death of a sibling of Janan named Joud Hamed Nasser Zare’ Al-Astal (4) and saying “Birds of paradise/My brother’s daughters, may God have mercy on you and go to heaven, God willing/Janan and Joud”, sharing a picture of the two children, and others sharing heartbreaking images of the infant Mian al-Astal who was killed.

Where sources identified the belligerent, all sources attributed the strikes to Israeli forces. A post from Shawqi Maghnam added that the house was demolished “without warning”.

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

Airwars assessment

Four people, including a woman and a child, were killed and at least eight others were injured after an alleged Israeli airstrike on the al-Durra residence in the Burejj camp at dawn on October 13th, 2023.

11-year-old Aryam al-Durra was killed with her father, Iyad al-Durra. Iyad’s brother Nael al-Durra was also killed, along with his wife, Salwa Taha (al-Durra). Iyad’s wife and three sons, as yet unnamed, were uncovered from under the rubble and taken to the hospital with injuries, according to Eg News 24.

Iyad and Nael’s brother Jamal al-Dourra told Anadolu Agency, “Israel bombed my brothers’ homes, killed my two brothers, my brother’s wife, and his only daughter.” Iyad and Nael’s brother Jamal stated to Elwatan News that the family had received no warning, and that he, his wife and children had survived solely due to a “divine miracle,” while also telling journalist Basma Wahba, presenter of the “90 Minutes” program, broadcast on the “Al-Mehwar” channel: “My house is located next to the house of my martyr brother, and on the day of his martyrdom I saw a tsunami in my house, and I left the house with my wife and children and we were injured.” He was only able to retrieve his brothers bodies from under rubble three days after the strike.

Social media posts circulated of Jamal al-Dourra, brother to Nael and Iyad, praying for his family and paying tribute to his family members at the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Mosque in the city of Deir al-Balah. In a video clip, Jamal is asking his brothers, “Reserve a place for me next to you,” as he prayed to God to help him with their passing.

An image of Jamal al-Dourra and his late son Muhammad al-Dourra was reportedly an icon of an uprising in 2000, in which his young son was killed by Israeli fire. The image depicted Jamal and his son taking cover in a cement barrel while being fired upon. Sources have used both photos to report on the incident.

A friend of Nael named Hussein Samir Kamel posted on Facebook a message to Nael that “You have been communicating with me for years about taking measures to buy an apartment for you in Egypt, but God wanted a better one for you in heaven with the martyrs.” A post on Twitter/X described Nael as “He used to help anyone in need, even beyond his capacity, and his wife Salwa was also beloved by everyone.”

According to the Bureij Facebook age, the strike occurred in the square after the Martyrs’ Roundabout in Bureij Camp.

Where sources identified the belligerent, all sources attributed the strikes to Israeli forces. Multiple local sources and witnesses refer to “explosive barrels” as being used in the attack.

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.

The incident occured around dawn.

Airwars assessment

On October 12th 2023, at least 15 and up to 25 civilians were killed and at least 25 others were wounded in an alleged Israeli airstrike on the Halawa family home in Al-Hoja Street in the centre of Jabalia camp, located in the Gaza Strip.

The incident was reported on by local Twitter/X and Facebook accounts, with most sources indicating between 14 and 25 deaths from the incident. A news report from Alaraby.com reports on the death of at least 14 civilians, whilst a Twitter/X post from @ShehabAgency recorded 25 deaths. Names of the victims were not found among local sources.

It has also been widely reported that 25 civilians were wounded in the airstrike. A post from the Palestinian Ministry of Interior and National Security corroborated the narrative of the incident, providing images of emergency services handling the aftermath. However, @ShehabAgency and Wattan.net only referred to “dozens” of wounded while other sources only specified “more than 25” wounded. Almasryalyoum.com added that the wounded were taken to the Indonesian Hospital.

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

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 incident occured in the evening.

Airwars assessment

At least 26 civilians were killed across three generations of an extended family, including 12 children, in an alleged Israeli strike on the al-Azayza family home on October 12th. A “large number” of others were also injured in the attack in the Deir al-Balah neighbourhood of the Gaza Strip.

The deceased were members of three families. Both Saeed Youssef al-Azayza (75 years old) and his wife Ward Muhammad al-Azayza (60 years old) were killed, along with their children and grandchildren. Their daughter, Amira al-Azayza (23 years old), was killed, as was their son, Lupine al-Azayza (47 years old). Lupine’s wife, Fathia al-Azayza (42 years old) was killed, as was their daughter, Elia Lupine al-Azayza (7 years old).

Another of Saeed and Ward’s daughters, Luna al-Azayza (48 years old), was also killed alongside her children: two daughters, Malak Abu Tawahinah (21 years old) and Kinda Abu Tawahinah (19 years old), and a son, Muhammad Abu Tawahinah (10 years old). Luna’s sister, Amna al-Azayza (40 years old), was also killed along with her husband, Tariq al-Halisi (57 years old), and their three children: their two sons, Ziad al-Halisi (9 years old) and Ali al-Halisi (8 years old), and their daughter, Ola al-Halisi (11 years old).

Members of another branch of the same family were also killed in the strike: Saeed Youssef’s brother, Muhammad Youssef al-Azayza (62 years old), and daughter-in-law Balsam Basil al-Azayza (30 years old). Her son, Saeed al-Azaizeh (8 years old), was killed, as was his sister, Ward al-Azaizeh (6 years old). Balsam’s husband Hussein M A. Halooly survived the strike and posted a condolence message for his wife and the rest of his family online.

Members of another family, the al-Halisi family, were also killed in the strike. Names were identified as Abdel Nasser al-Halisi (64 years old) and his wife, Arwa al-Halisi (36 years old), their children: sons Muhammad al-Halisi (10 years old), Abdullah al-Halisi (9 years old), Abdul Rahman al-Halisi (2 years old) and Abdul Aziz al-Halisi (4 years old), and daughter Batoul al-Halisi (5 years old).

The al-Azayza family were related to renowned photojournalist Moataz Azaizeh, who shared multiple commemorative posts on his social media. Reportedly, after not being able to communicate with his family, Moataz went to the site of the bombing in order to cover the strike, only to find his family amongst the deceased. “My family is in pieces” he told Alaraby News as he documented the removal of body parts of members of his family; some of which were difficult to identify.

A tweet from @Mohammedaboselm described working at Deir Al-Balah Martyrs Health Center with “Uncle Al-Hakim Abu Al-Saeed” (Saeed Youssef al-Azayza) and described him as a “kind, humble, and smiling man who never failed to serve the people of the city of #Deir_Al-Balah”.

Al Abbas bin Abdul Muttalib B Basic School posted on Facebook a condolence message for their colleague Fathia al-Azayza, her husband and her daughter, including an image of their very young daughter dressed up as a doctor.

The strike was reported to have destroyed the entire home and caused damage to neighboring residences.

The search for remains was still ongoing in the following days. Due to the destruction, multiple sources including Anadolu Agency reported that not all remains had been identified at the time, with earlier lower estimates of deaths put at 11 by Anadolu Agency and Nabd News reporting 14. Anadolu Agency also added that “eyewitnesses reported that civil defense and health crews were removing the rubble to save those remaining inside (their number was not specified)” indicating that some civilians may have survived and were injured.

Alaraby News also indicated that there were “a large number injured” in the bombing without providing numbers. Airwars has quantified this as 12-24, to account for this ambiguity.

Where sources identified the belligerent, all sources attributed the strike to Israeli forces. Multiple sources specified that the strike occurred without warning.

Every name identified in the strike was found by Airwars among the Palestinian Ministry of Health list of names released on October 26th, 2023.

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.
