The house shelled by the Israeli military where toddler Hala Abu Sbeikhah was killed, Gaza, 25 Dec. 2013

December 2013

On 25 Dec. 2013 Muhammad Sabah, B'Tselem's field researcher in the northern Gaza Strip, arrived at the home of the Abu Sbeikhah family. The house had been shelled by the military in response to the killing of Israeli civilian Salah Abu Ltayef by gunfire from the Gaza Strip. The shelling killed toddler Hala Abu Sbeikhah (2 years, 8 months old) while she was playing in the yard of the family home. Hala’s aunt and two young cousins sustained injuries. Hala’s uncle, who was outside during the firing, said there was no activity by armed Palestinians in the area at the time.
