Soon after 5-year-old Noureldin went to bed last week in Gaza City, an air strike flattened his home. Six members of his family were killed as they had tea in the yard.
Noureldin, who hasn't "uttered a word" since the incident, is now recovering in al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City, according to UNICEF. He is one of at least 296 Palestinian children who have been injured since Israeli air strikes began last week. The Israeli government has accused Hamas of kidnapping three Israeli teenagers in June -- the initial trigger responsible for the current escalating violence -- the BBC reported.
