Besieged Gaza Strip (QNN)- Israeli war officials have confirmed that ‘Israel’ was responsible for the killing of five Palestinian children in the last day of the recent bombardment on the Gaza Strip after initially blaming Islamic Jihad movement.
An army inquiry into the incident, which occurred on August 7 in the Al-Faluja Cemetery east of Jabalya refugee camp, has concluded that the five minors were killed by an Israeli airstrike, several war sources confirmed to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz.
At the time of the airstrike, the Israeli forces claimed that the five were most likely killed by a misfired Islamic Jihad rocket.
