GAZA, (PIC)-- A 67-year-old Palestinian man survived on Tuesday an Israeli shelling of his home to the east of Khan Younis, south of the Gaza Strip, human rights sources said.
They told the PIC reporter that Mohammed Sharab was in his home, which is only 350 meters away from the separation barrier, when the Israeli occupation forces opened machinegun fire from their tanks.
They said that many bullets penetrated the house’s windows and rooms, adding that Sharab knew that the Israelis wanted him to abandon his house but was adamant on staying in it.
Sharab was seriously wounded during the Israeli war on Gaza on 16/1/2009 and his two sons were killed in the same war. When he recovered he insisted on returning to his home.Father of two martyrs survives Israeli shelling:
