Medics: Israeli tank fire kills 8 members of family in Gaza

July 19, 2014 3:24 A.M. (Updated: July 19, 2014 3:24 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (AFP) -- At least eight members of a single family, among them four children, were killed by Israeli tank fire in northern Gaza on Friday evening, medics said.

The eight members of the Abu Jurad family -- two men, two women, and four children -- were killed in their home in Beit Hanoun, emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra said.

He had given an initial toll of five dead in the attack, but revised it upwards to eight, adding the deaths of three additional children from the family.

He gave the names of the children as Hania, Ahlam, Samih and Musa -- two girls and two boys.

Their deaths raised the toll on the eleventh day of conflict between Israel and the Palestinian group Hamas to 292 killed in Gaza.

Two Israelis have been killed, one civilian and one soldier.
