Gaza death toll tops 1900, three dead bodies pulled out of mosque rubble
[ 09/08/2014 - 10:35 AM ]
At least three dead bodies have been recovered by the Gaza rescue crews from beneath the debris of Izzuddin Al-Qassam Mosque in the Nussayrat refugee camp, in central Gaza, on Saturday while search for other dead bodies continued.
A PIC correspondent said civil defense crews rushed to the bombed are to recover the casualties buried under Izzuddin Al-Qassam Mosque, razed to the ground by a barrage of rocket fire unleashed by the Israeli fighter jets at dawn Saturday.
The recovered bodied were identified as those of Mu'adh Zayed, Tareq Jad Allah, and Nidhal Badran.
Al-Qassam Mosque was the largest in the Nusayrat refugee camp and built over an overall area amounting to 1000 square meters. An Israeli rocket attack reduced the four-floured mosque to rubble.
The incident occurred shortly after the 72-hour ceasefire, brokered by Egypt last Tuesday, expired.
Gaza death toll has reached more than 1,900, while the number of wounded civilians has gone up to about 9,900, mostly children, women and elderly people. Hundreds of civilian homes, mosques, factories and public headquarters were completely destroyed in Israeli attacks.
The Palestinian resistance factions have continued to launch rocket counterattacks in response to Israel's crimes against the civilians in Gaza.
