Gazan family living in Israel says Strip should be 'flattened' after Hamas raids

The family of an Arab man killed by Hamas in Israel have said he was killed 'for nothing'


A Gazan family living in Israel have said they want the Strip to be 'flattened' after Hamas terrorists killed their brother last weekend in Sderot.

The Tanabura family, who have lived in Israel for the past 30 years but still have family in Gaza spoke to Sky News from their home in Sderot, saying that their brother Amir was killed in cold blood when he left his house to buy cigarettes.

Younes Tanabura, found out from Hamas social media videos that his brother was killed, saying: "Three terrorists chased him, but he was unable to escape. They murdered him like that, for nothing, a good man who saw an injured person and wanted to help," 

His brother Avraham added: "He had a heart of gold,"

"As they say, 'God takes only the best'. Next month, he should have turned 21."

"There was no mercy,"

"They could have shot him once but no - they shot him several times, well after he died. He got a bullet, here, here, here."

"Hamas are murderers, they are terrorists. We should erase everybody, Gaza should be flattened. I have family in Gaza but I think Gaza should be flattened."

The current death toll in Israel is over 1300, with the vast majority of those killed civilians. Yesterday, the IDF confirmed that soldiers were making limited incursions into Gaza to search for bodies and belongings of hostages taken by Hamas.
