War: Israel’s overnight strikes on Rafah kills 13, including nine children


Israeli’s overnight strikes on Rafah have killed 13 people, including nine children, according to the Guardian UK.

The newspaper quoted health officials as saying that strikes launched on the southern Gaza city of Rafah overnight killed at least 13 people.

A nearby Kuwaiti hospital, which received the bodies, said that the first strike killed a man, his wife and their three-year-old child.

The Associated Press quoted the hospital officials as saying that the woman was pregnant and the doctors managed to save the baby.

The hospital further disclosed that the second strike killed eight children and two women, all from the same family.

Israel carried out the attack despite warnings that any attack on the city is likely to cause many more civilian casualties and worsen an already acute humanitarian crisis across Gaza.
