Israeli military officials have admitted that an Israeli airstrike was responsible for killing five Palestinean children at a cemetery in Gaza during Israel’s recent three-day bombing campaign against the besieged enclave.
The Israeli airstrike hit the Al-Faluja Cemetery next to the Jabalia refugee camp in northern Gaza on August 7. After the incident, Israeli officials claimed the children could have been killed by a misfired rocket launched by the Palestinian group Islamic Jihad.
But Israeli military officials told Haaretz that an Israeli Army inquiry into the incident found that Israel was to blame. The victims’ ages ranged from four to 17 and most were from the same family. They were killed as they sat next to their grandfather’s grave in the cemetery.
According to Al Jazeera, the victims were Jamil Najm al-Deen Naijm, age 4, Jamil Ihab Najim, 13, Mohammad Nijm, 17, Hamed Nijm, 17, and Nazmi Abu Karsh, 15.
The three-day Israeli bombing campaign killed 49 Palestinians, including 17 children. The bombardment started on August 5 when the initial Israeli strike killed an Islamic Jihad leader, a five-year-old girl, and several other Palestinians.
Israel still claims that some of the dead were killed by errant Islamic Jihad rockets, but that account has been disputed by Palestinians. The Israeli military officials speaking to Haaretz claimed that a similar incident in the Jabalya refugee camp that killed eight civilians, including children, was caused by an errant rocket.
After Israel agreed to a ceasefire in Gaza, President Biden and other US officials expressed strong support for Israel’s bombing campaign. Biden said he was “proud” of US support for Israel, and the US ambassador to Israel said the US was “fully supportive” of the country’s actions in Gaza.

GOD will give HIS own judgement on the killing of Palestinian children by the Israeli’s. We will see then how “proud” Joe Biden is when he faces his maker – which just looking at him does not appear to be too far away- at his support for cold blooded murder .
Yes, we all here hope there is ultimately meaning to the universe, Truth, Justice, the Platonic & Xtian Verities. However, for Washington and its acolytes, votaries, and myrmidons there is only Will-to-Power.
I’m wondering if there is a translator available… :-}
“Myrmidons”?…. Does that have anything to do with Mermaids?
Perhaps, small mermaids?… :-} Oh, oh, or maybe Mermen? Dons?…
I’ll get back to you… I’m on my way to find a dictionary…
Don’t fire rockets at Israel, and they won’t fire back at you-very simple.
Don’t colonize and ethnically cleanse the Palestinians and the Palestinians won’t fire rockets.
BTW there were no rocket attacks preceding Israeli attacks.
BTW-there were rockets.There is no colonialism-there is only a return home.
This time the killing was purely personal . Lapid wants to be elected .BBC told that strike was abrilliant premptive move.
This personal need was the reason Czar would offer to himself in late 1800 and early 1900 . Cossack would enter and burn the settlements at Pale . We called that vicious antisemitism.
Hmmm, ByeDone professes to be a practicing Catholic. I was raised Catholic a loooong time ago and I’m pretty darn certain that one of the commandments read “ Thou shalt not kill”.
ByeDone is killing by proxy. But it’s still murder any way you look at it, on so many fronts.
How disgusting that the West still supports this despotic regime and turns a blindeye to the atrocities which it commits.
Cut Israel from US welfare payments. Make Israel stand alone. Let Israel sleep in the bed it has made for itself. Shun Israel… BDS
I wonder how many of their relatives signed up for jihad over this. Israel is making enemies faster than it kills them.
Was there ever any f*cking doubt that Israhell was responsible for the murders?
IsraHell seems to get particular satisfaction from killing innocent children.
Hey Odele, whatcha got?
“After the incident, Israeli officials claimed the children could have been killed by a misfired rocket launched by the Palestinian group Islamic Jihad.”
“But Israeli military officials told Haaretz that an Israeli Army inquiry into the incident found that Israel was to blame.”
They’ve learned from their host (US). Similar to our airstrikes that kill a bunch of civilians. Deny at first and when the dust has settled, then admit that you are guilty. Enough time has gone by to calm what outrage there might have been. Add to the fact that the parasite owns our congress, and you have nothing but crickets when the truth does eventually come out.
Right on Wars. I can guarantee that the MSM won’t utter a single solitary word about the truth.
Does Israel ever issue Fatwas, I mean new fatwas? Or does it use the same old one that was used to massacre the civilians in late 40s?
Its existence was predicated on bible aparently on the deed signed by god.
