"Gaza – Ma'an – Hundreds of people took to the streets of the town of Beit Lahia in the Gaza Strip for the funeral of three dead children killed by Israeli artillery fire on Wednesday as they played near their home.
Ten-year-old Yahya Ramdan Abu Ghazala and twelve-year-old Mahmoud Abu Ghazala died instantly. Their ten-year-old cousin, Sara, was seriously injured. She died later in hospital.
Israeli sources claim the children were playing near a rocket launcher, used to fire missiles at Israeli forces.
There were no tears during the funeral, just shock and grief frozen on the faces of the Ghazala family who have lost so much. "
