On Tuesday, Gaza health ministry officials put the death toll at 32, but a Hamas-affiliated radio station later said three more people, including a woman and a child, were killed shortly before 2am on Wednesday in an Israeli air strike.

COMMENTS AND REACTIONS.
The following is how people on social media reacted to this story.
5 of those children were killed when a terrorist rocket aimed at Israel misfired and fell inside Gaza. The 6th child was used as a human shield by her own father when he was targeted by the IDF.

Sadly, this is a common occurrence. Misfired Palestinian rockets, that explode in densely civilian areas of Palestine, that PIJ & Hamas intentionally fight from & use for cover. The rockets kill the Pal civilians…
then Palestinians blame Israel to intentionally cause outrage.
Wow. Things are bad when Gaza report affirms that it was terrorists rockets killed their own.
I saw this footage tagged as non authentic elsewhere.
The claims about the casualties of some musfired rockets may be true, but you should double check the authenticity of this footage.
