GAZA: An Israeli missile slammed into a tent encampment in southern Gaza on Tuesday (Jul 9) just as displaced people had gathered there to watch a football match at a school, eyewitnesses said on Wednesday.

At least 29 people, mostly women and children, were killed in the strike, according to Palestinian officials, which took place as spectators crowded the school grounds in Abassan east of Khan Younis and hawkers sold smoothies and biscuits.

“They were watching a football match. There were injuries and martyrs. I witnessed this … people thrown around and body parts scattered, blood,” a young woman, Ghazzal Nasser, told Reuters in Abassan.

“Everything was normal. People were playing, others were buying and selling (food and drinks). There was no sound of planes or anything,” she said.
