A Palestinian child died in the blockaded Gaza Strip at dawn Friday while his father and sister were left wounded when a roof of the family home collapsed over their heads.
A PIC news correspondent said five-year-old Bilal Merish was instantly killed in the collapse of a tin roof while his father and sister sustained injuries.
The casualties’ home is located in al-Shuja’iya neighborhood, in eastern Gaza City, an area where hundreds of Palestinian civilian homes were destroyed by an Israeli military offensive in the summer of 2014.

Several other homes are expected to collapse as a result of the serious damage inflicted by Israeli shelling.
