The victims of Friday’s bombing in Nuseirat included seven relatives of Azhar al-Rifi, three of whom were children.

This was the second time his family was bombed.

Rifi, 36, first fled north to live with relatives in Deir al-Balah, but his home was destroyed. Then he took shelter in Nusirat camp.

Rifi was admitted to hospital in Deir al-Balah with leg injuries, while his two-year-old son Mohammed survived with head injuries.

“They said the south was safe, so we went,” he said.

But his five-year-old nephew Jaoud died.

“His mother died two weeks ago, so my husband decided he would live with us,” she said.

“He came last night and said to me: ‘Now that my mother is dead, I can’t call anyone mother anymore.’

“I replied: ‘I am your mother’.”

The boy went to sleep in a room with 12 other children, he said.

“At four in the morning he was taken away from us.”
