Her mother Nisrin (38) was also killed in the attack that targeted the building adjacent to their house. The targeted building belonged to Ali Abdel Jawad Mohammed Mhesin. The assault left one more person, Suheir Abdel Karim Abu Middin (43), dead.
After a warning missile from a drone hit the building, most residents managed to flee. However, Suheir went back inside the building, apparently to retrieve some belongings, and was killed. In the adjacent Ahmed family house, the residents were unaware of the warning missile and did not have the time to flee.
