These 4 children were targeted while playing football in front of the Hotel Al Deira on Gaza beach. The shack nearby was hit which sent them running for shelter. The next missile hit them. This was cold blooded murder.
They were reportedly attacked by Israeli naval boats.
The children were identified as Ahed Atef Bakir, 10, Zakariya Ahed Bakir, 10, Mohammad Ramiz Bakir, 11, and Ismail Mahmoud Bakir, 9.
All the sea front hotels are venues for foreign journalists and photographers to work from & Israel knows this.
They killed these children in full view of the foreign press in broad daylight. This to me, suggests the full and total complicity of our Governments in their “war” crimes.
Israel does not care about public opinion because they know they are protected and can kill with impunity. 43 children in 9 days.
This is a dark, dark day for Humanity. We have fallen into an abyss.
This is an image that has been recently posted on Facebook which shows a nearby explosion causing the young boys to run, then shortly after it seems the boys were targeted and became victims of a deadly strike, you can then see their lifeless bodies being carried away.
The video below is graphic and shows the aftermath of the attack with the limp bodies of the boys being carried away from the scene of the explosion.
Here are some photos of grieving family members
This one is hard to look at but I feel necessary, we must expose what Israeli bombs are doing:
You can read a first hand witness report to the shelling of these poor boys which was published in the guardian here
Here is a video from RT with an interview with an IDF spokesperson who says , ”That does look tragic” when discussing the 4 dead children:
Please share widely. It’s essential we use the power of social media to raise awareness of these war crimes committed by the IDF
