25 Gazans killed since sunset, brings Friday total to 62, total death toll 297


GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Twenty-Five Palestinians including eight members of a single family were killed by Israeli forces in the Gaza Strip on Friday evening, while the death of a young man wounded earlier in the week brought the total number of deaths in Israel's 11-day long assault to 297 and more than 2,200 injured. The deaths bring the total killed since the beginning of the ground invasion late Thursday night to 62, as deaths and injuries across the besieged coastal enclave soared on the first day of the assault in both the northern and southern regions of the territory. Of the 62 killed since the beginning of the Israeli invasion, 25 died after Gazans broke their fast at sunset on Friday evening as Israeli air strikes pounded the Strip. Eight members of the Abu Jrad family including four children were killed when a missile struck their home in Beit Hanoun including Naim Musa Abu Jrad, 23, Abd Musa Abu Jrad, 30, Siham Musa Abu Jrad, 26, Rija Aliyan Abu Jrad, and four children: Haniyah Abd al-Rahman Abu Jrad, Samih Naim Abu Jrad, Musa Abd al-Rahman Abu Jrad, 6 months, and Ahlam Musa Abu Jrad. Four members of the Shaath family were killed and four were injured including one seriously after an air strike on their home in the Hayy al-Manara neighborhood of Khan Younis around 10:30 p.m. Three members of the Abu Sneineh family were also killed in a strike on their home in eastern Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip and three others were injured. The dead were named by Gaza medical authorities as: Faysal Abu Sneineh, 32, Emad Faysal Abu Sneineh, 18, and Nizar Fayez Aub Sneineh, 38. more
