 Three-day-old Nour, youngest victim of Israeli assault

An Israeli airstrike targeted the house of the Issa family on Monday night, wounding Nada and her newly born infant Nour, only three days old.

An Israeli airstrike targeted the house of the Issa family on Monday night, wounding Nada and her newly born infant Nour, only three days old.

Nada and her little baby girl Nour both sustained moderate injuries, making Nour the youngest victim of the Israeli assault on the Gaza Strip.

"Thanks to God, I did not lose Nour," the mother told Anadolu news agency. "I cannot imagine living without my first baby, whom I waited to see for a long time."

Ignoring the pain of her own wounds, Nada rued that shrapnel from an Israeli air strike would hit her little baby.

Hayel, Nour's father, at first did not believe that his baby and wife remained alive after seeing them covered in so much blood.

Israel's relentless assault on Gaza has so far martyred 260 Palestinians and wounded more than 1,550.

Rights groups have called Israel's collective punishment of Palestinians in Gaza a flagrant violation of international law.
