Beit Hanoun families flee Israeli onslaught

Gaza – Ma’an – Dozens of Palestinian families from the northern Gaza Strip town of Beit Hanoun left their apartments in tower number one at the An-Nada neighborhood to tower number 25 trying to find shelter from Israeli shelling.

The coordinator of the local committee for countering Israeli attacks, Sabir Za’aneen said he saw dozens of women and children leaving their apartments and screaming as they headed towards tower number 25. He explained that they were seeking shelter after shrapnel of Israeli shells and gunshots broke the windows of their apartments.

He also claimed that the Israeli soldiers deliberately fired at water tanks on the rooftops of the buildings as well as electricity cables.

Seven people, including a mother and her four young children, were killed by Israeli fire in Beit Hanoun earlier on Monday.
