The 65-year-old father of our colleague, Anas al-Sharif, has been killed in an Israeli strike on his house in Jabalia, northern Gaza Strip.
The rest of the family had evacuated to an UNRWA school but that was impossible for the father due to his age and health.
Al-Sharif told Al Jazeera that his father died instantly after the house that he lived in was bombed.
He added that he would not be able to reach his home as a result of the continuous Israeli bombing.
Al-Sharif stressed that he would continue to cover Israel’s war on Gaza.
