May 5, 2019: Raghda Mohammad Abu al-Jedian, 40, was killed in the Israeli bombardment of residential areas in the Gaza Strip, along with her husband and 12-year old child.
The child’s death was reported on Sunday May 5th, but the bodies of the parents were not uncovered from under the rubble until Monday May 6th, so their deaths were not immediately reported.
The Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed that on Sunday May 5th, Raghda, along with her husband and child, were buried under the rubble of their home, which was bombarded by the Israeli army.
The Ministry said the corpses of Talal ‘Atiya Abu Jedian, 46, who worked as a security guard at the al-Awda Hospital, and his wife Raghda Mohammad Abu al-Jedian, 40, were buried under the rubble of their bombarded apartment at a residential tower in Beit Lahia, in northern Gaza.
Their corpses were recovered the day after the bombing, and were transferred their corpses to the Indonesian Hospital, in northern Gaza Strip.
It is worth mentioning that their child, Abdul-Rahman Talal Abu Jedian, 12, was instantly killed after Israeli missiles struck Residential Tower 12 in Sheikh Zayed City, in northern Gaza.
Their deaths bring the number of slain Palestinians in less that three days of Israeli escalation to 29, including Saba Mahmoud Abu Arar, 14 months, and her pregnant mother, Falasteen Saleh Abu Arar, 37, in addition to Maria Ahmad al-Ghazali, 4 months, and her mother Eman Abdullah al-Ghazali, 30.
