November 3rd, 2018: Mohammad Nasr ar-Reefy, 14, died from serious wounds he suffered after the army fired a missile at his home, during the Israeli war in the Gaza Strip, in the summer of 2014.
The Al-Wafa’ Rehabilitation Hospital said the child, Mohammad Nasr ar-Reefy, 14, was seriously injured, on August 21, 2014, with injuries and shrapnel all over his body, including a piece in his spine, resulting in quadriplegia and various health complications.
The child was injured mainly in his neck and head when the Israeli army fired a missile at the family’s farmland, in the Tuffah neighborhood, in Gaza city.
The Israeli missile instantly killed the child’s brother Omar Nasr Ziad ar-Reefy, 4, and their father Nasr Ziad ar-Reefy, 35, in addition to his cousin Abdullah Tareq ar-Reefy, 7, and Abdullah’s brother Ziad, 13, along with their father, Mohammad Ziad Abed-Rabbo ar-Reefy, 28,
The Al-Mezan Center for Human Rights reported at the time that, on Thursday morning August 21st, 2014, an Israeli war jet fired a missile toward farmland owned by ar-Reefy family, near the an-Nafaq Street, north of Gaza city, killing five members of the family, including three children, and wounding four, including two children, identified as Maram ar-Reefi, and Ziad Tareq ar-Reefy, 9, who later died from his wounds.
It said the soldiers killed Ahmad Tareq ar-Reefy, Mohammad Tareq ar-Reefy, 13, Abdullah Tareq ar-Reefy, 6, and Mohammad Ziad Abed-Rabbo ar-Reefy, 28, and injured dozens, many of them seriously.

Gaza's Drinking Water Spurs Blue Baby Syndrome, Serious Illnesses
Contaminated and scarce water owing to Israel's brutal siege and bombing of infrastructure leads to death and disease. "We are very busy," the overwhelmed doctor says. "Babies suffering from dehydration, from vomiting, from diarrhoea, from fever." The skyrocketing rate of diarrhoea, the world's second largest killer of children under five, is reason enough for alarm.
But in recent months Dr Abu Samia has seen sharp rises in gastroenteritis, kidney disease, paediatric cancer, marasmus - a disease of severe malnutrition appearing in infants – and "blue baby syndrome", an ailment causing bluish lips, face, and skin, and blood the colour of chocolate.
Before, the doctor says, he saw "one or two cases" of blue baby syndrome in five years. Now it's the opposite - five cases in one year.
Asked if he has studies to back up his findings, he says: "We live in Gaza, in an emergency situation … We have time only to relieve the problem, not to research it."
Independent, peer-reviewed medical journals have also documented increased infant mortality, anaemia, and an "alarming magnitude" of stunting among Gaza's children.
A Rand Corporation study has found that bad water is a leading cause of child mortality in Gaza.
Simply put, Gaza's children are facing a deadly health epidemic of unprecedented proportions.
"So much suffering," says Dr Abu Samia. It is, he says, a matter of "life and death".

Day in, day out of the old town of Alkhalil City (Hebron), Palestinians endure daily humiliation and obstruction of movement while Zionist occupation Jewish illegal colonists can freely move about town even armed, never inspected, while many Palestinian citizens on the other hand were executed while approaching the military checkpoint trying to get in or out just because occupiers felt Palestinians behavior was suspicious.

A Palestinian teenage boy died from, on Sunday evening, from serious wounds he suffered a day earlier, after Israeli soldiers shot and seriously injured him, in Central Gaza.
The slain Palestinian has been identified as Emad Khalil Shahin, 17, from the Nusseirat refugee camp in Central Gaza.
He was shot and seriously injured by the soldiers, on Saturday at night, during a protest in central Gaza, after the army claimed he “breached the perimeter fence.”
Palestinian sources said the teen was near the fence on the Palestinian side, when the soldiers shot and dragged him away.
Shahin suffered a very serious injury, before the army later airlifted him to Soroka hospital, in Be’er as-Sabe’ city (Beersheba), where he died from his wounds.
It is worth mentioning that the Shahin was injured by live Israel army fire several times, including one incident when he had several toes amputated, since the Great Return March procession started on Palestinian Land Day, March 30th, 2018. Source: IMEMC

Funding for humanitarian activities in the occupied Palestinian territory is at an all-time low.
At the end of September, only $159 million had been secured of a requested $539.7 million for the 2018 Humanitarian Response Plan, significantly lower than the the current global average of 42%. Lack of funding leaves humanitarian organizations ill-positioned to meet emerging needs or respond to the deterioration. Source: @un_ocha

Muhammed, 7, was diagnosed with cancer and referred out of Gaza for further investigation and treatment. His parents were unable to get security permits to accompany him. Instead, an older relative had to take him to hospital.
Older relatives often accompany children because male relatives over 55 years and female relatives over 45 years are not required to undergo additional and lengthy security checks that often delay access to care. Source: @who
Israel killed 32 Palestinians – 26 in the besieged Gaza Strip and six in the occupied West Bank – in October, including six children. A further 2,166 others were wounded across the occupied Palestinian territories (oPt).The figures were issued in a report by the Abdullah Al-Horani Research Centre, affiliated with the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO), Quds Press reported. It noted that 28-year-old Wisam Shalaldeh, who passed away inside an Israeli prison due to medical negligence, was one of those Palestinians killed last month.
The report also said that the Israeli occupation is still holding the bodies of two Palestinians from the neighbourhood of Sair, north of Hebron in the occupied West Bank. Israel claims they were killed after carrying out stabbing attacks, thus raising the number of bodies withheld by Israel to 32. Source: @middleeastmonitor
