3 Mosques Flattened by Israeli Airstrikes
The renowned Mosque of Ahmed Yassin in Shati refugee camp has been flattened to the ground in a violent round Israeli airforces have launched against the Gaza Strip after Monday midnight October 8th, 2023.
Eyewitnesses said that Israeli aircraft pounded the Mosque with a heavy strike that led to its full destruction and severe damages have been inflicted on the nearby houses as the Mosque is located in a very densely populated area.
A Palestinian girl was killed in the Mosque’s attack and others were wounded, according to local sources.
Early hours of Monday night, the big Al-Yarmouk Mosque, West of Gaza City, was also leveled to the ground, causing massive destruction to the infrastructure.
Local sources said that a number of Palestinians were pulled out dead from under the Mosque’s rubble.
In the Shati refugee camp, another Mosque Abu Shant was also demolished without a prior warning just moments earlier to Ahmed Yassine Mosque’s bomb.
Palestinian Ministry of Health stated that the death toll has risen to at least 370 Palestinians including 20 children due to the ongoing aggression against the Gaza Strip.
