Israeli strike in Gaza kills Al Jazeera journalist’s family in a supposed safe zone

1 min read

Three members of Al Jazeera journalist Wael Al Dahdouh’s family – his wife, son, and daughter – were killed in what Al Jazeera described as an “Israeli air strike” in Gaza. Mr. Dahdouh was reporting on Israeli strikes in the area just before the deaths were confirmed. His family was in a temporary home in the Nuseirat refugee camp in central Gaza, which Israel had called a “safe area.” However, Israeli military strikes continued in that region, causing fear among evacuees.

Al Jazeera later showed a video message from Mr. Dahdouh’s two older children, who appealed to the global community for help to “stay alive.”

Israeli strikes in Gaza have resulted in a significant number of casualties, with around 6,500 people killed. Hamas, which governs Gaza, carried out a violent attack on October 7, leading to the deaths of over 1,400 people, including civilians.

The Israeli military has not commented on these particular deaths, and Al Jazeera strongly condemned the indiscriminate targeting and killing of civilians in Gaza, urging the international community to intervene and stop such attacks.
