Location Rafah

Seven-year-old Mohamed from the Msabeh area in Rafah in the south of the Gaza Strip was a very brave boy. He was a handsome child who took great care of his looks. He was very close to his father. “He used to go the mosque to pray and he loved playing football,” said Sheikh Mohamed Dhair, a survivor of the attack.

At approximately 4:29 am on 29 July 2014 an Israeli drone launched a missile at the Dhair family's house. During the evacuation, when seven people had just stepped out of the main door of the house and the rest of the group was close behind, a second missile hit the house. The three-storey house was completely destroyed. Twenty persons were killed, including Mohamed. Three persons were injured.

“Honestly, I miss them all so much. I feel that life after them is worth nothing," added Sheikh Mohamed Dhair.
