In the north of Gaza city, a fire that erupted in a home killed 21 people including 9 children. So far the hospital nearby has received the bodies of seven children and a search is going on for the remaining dead bodies. The fire erupted in a refugee camp, Jabalia, which also has large buildings such as these.
Fire Is Under Control
According to Hamas, the firefighters have managed to control the fire causing enough damage to the building killing 21 people. The cause of the fire is unknown. According to a civil defence spokesman, the reason could be fuel that was stored in the house. Palestinian president, Mahmud Abbas, announced a day of mourning on Friday in the memory of all those who died in the incident.
Israel Is Helping
Although it’s not certain, several sources claimed that Israelis have also insisted on treating those who are injured. “Humanitarian evacuations of the injured to (Israeli) hospitals,” Benny Gantz, Israel’s Defence Minister tweeted.
