SOT, Abu Mohammed Zo'rob, Resident affected by attack (Arabic): "At 10am, a leader in the Israeli intelligence called us from an unknown number. He said, 'Are you Moneer Abu Mohammed?' I said that is right. He told me that I have only five minutes to evacuate the house. He asked me about the number of my family members, and I told him that there are eight of us. Four of us left, and there are still four. He asked me to ask the four who had not left to leave the house, and he told me not to take anything with us, except my children, and then to evacuate. When my children left the house, he asked me if there is still anyone inside. I told him that no one was inside. After that, the house was targeted by a warning rocket by a drone, [followed by] many rockets."

SOT, Umm Mohammed Zo'rob, Resident affected by attack (Arabic): "My husband told me that the Israeli army called him to evacuate the house very fast. We evacuated, but we forgot my little daughter in the house and I was shouting, 'Where is Hadeel?' They told me that Hadeel was in the house. The Israeli army called us again and asked if the house was evacuated, we told him to wait for a while, and that there is still a child inside. Her brother entered the house and took her out. We could not take anything with us."

SOT, Umm Mohammed Zo'rob, Resident affected by attack (Arabic): "The Israeli army proclaimed that they had targeted a house of an al-Qassam leader, as they said on the al-Arabia TV at night. I want whoever said that they had targeted a house of al-Qassam to come and face the Red Cross, Human Rights. My husband is a peaceful farmer, and he has no connection with any faction of the resistance."

SCRIPT
A house in the city of Khan Yunis, southern Gaza strip, was obliterated on Wednesday in an alleged Israeli airstrike. The family was reportedly told to evacuate five minutes ahead of the blast.
Footage shows a rubble-filled crater, several meters deep, where the house was.
"The Israeli army proclaimed that they had targeted a house of an al-Qassam leader," said Umm Mohammed Zo'rob, the mother of the family who lived in the destroyed home. "My husband is a peaceful farmer, and he has no connection with any faction of the resistance."
At least 24 Palestinians were reportedly killed and dozens more injured in a two-day escalation of violence since Israel launched airstrikes to kill a top Islamic Jihad commander Bahaa Abu al-Ata.
According to the Gaza officials, more than 50 air raids and 21 artillery attacks have targeted various areas in the Gaza Strip, including homes, agricultural lands and farms.
A total of 48 houses were reportedly destroyed in the airstrikes.
