Location Rafah

Three-year-old Tasneem from the Msabeh area in Rafah in the south of the Gaza Strip was said to be a very smart child. She joined the kindergarten early and was a distinguished student. She liked singing and she had memorized 12 short verses of the Quran. “She did not like to eat onions, just like her mother, and she really liked to eat sweets,” her father says.

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 four-year-old Tasneem. Three persons were injured.

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