 Mohammed Baker (aged 9), Ahed Baker (aged 10), Zakaria Baker (aged 10), and Mohammed Baker (aged 11) were playing on the beach when an Israeli missile or shell landed near them and they were killed. Israel has targeted dozens of locations in the Gaza Strip since the latest round of hostilities broke out. However, thanks to Al Deira, this attack was different: Not only was an attack on the beach hard to justify militarily, it was also witnessed by a large number of foreign journalists.
