Location Rafah

17-year-old Ameen from Al Seiamat neighborhood in Rafah, in the south of the Gaza Strip had just completed his secondary school and was anxious to join university. He was a spoiled and stubborn boy. “He loved playing football,” his 66-year-old grandfather Mahrous said.

The Siam family's house was located adjacent to the Abu Sneimah home that was bombarded by Israeli missiles. The Siam family decided to evacuate. As soon as they stepped onto the street, they were hit by a missile. 10 were killed instantly, including Ameen. Many others were wounded.

“It’s so hard losing your whole family all at once,” added Mahrous.
