The family had left the house for the weekend during which the Israeli army implemented the ‘Hannibal directive’. They returned only 15 minutes before the attack on their house took place.
“I wanted to have a last look at her but people told me ‘there is no Amal’. Her head was scattered everywhere,” explains Tahrir, Amal and Mohammed’s mother.
