His uncle Attiyeh told Ynet: "I heard from his mother that the shell fell while they were in the water. We the Palestinians are stuck in the middle between the Israelis and terror groups. I am not angry. From my land no Qassams have been fired and if the do I'll take their eyes out. If you want to fire Qassams don't come to my house, fire from your house."

The father, Ali Ghalia, 48, his wife Raisa, 30, his daughters Alia, 24, Elham, 15, Nisrin, 4, one-and-a-half-year-old Hanadi and Haitham, a five-month-old toddler were killed in the strike.
