Israel Indiscriminately Killing Civilians, CNN Investigations Reveals

Roba Abu Jibba

This is horseshit.

They didn’t need an “investigation.”

They could have reported this in October, because it was happening in front of everyone.

Now, with everyone having adapted to the situation of an ongoing slaughter of women and children by the Jews, the Jew media decides to come out and say “oh, well, actually, yes, this is happening.”


The right side of Roba Abu Jibba’s face is almost completely gone – a deep, bloody wound is where her eye should be.

The 18-year-old, confused and in pain, lies on a gurney in Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital in Deir al-Balah, central Gaza. She tries to explain how she got there. She had been sheltering with her family for two months in an industrial warehouse on Salaheddin Street, the strip’s main north-south highway, she explains, when they came under heavy fire from the Israeli military.

In a whisper, she recalls being shot at, explosions and bulldozing. She says she watched her brothers and sisters die around her. Her mother and three of her siblings were able to flee, but she’s not sure where they went.

After a chance encounter and the discovery of Roba’s identification card under rubble, a weeks-long CNN investigation has been able to piece together what happened during one terrifying night in early January, which left five of her siblings dead. Their story offers a window into the Israeli military’s overwhelming and often indiscriminate use of force in areas where civilians were told they would be safe, helping to uncover an atrocity that would otherwise have remained hidden.

Nearly two weeks after the attack, a group of residents combing through the destruction on Salaheddin Street came across a horrifying scene: at least eight people, including three children, all dead, huddled inside a collapsed warehouse. Those working to retrieve the bodies covered their faces, shielding themselves from flies and the smell of decomposing flesh.

Nobody knew who the people were – yet another group of unidentified victims among the nearly 30,000 Palestinians who have been killed since Israel launched its aerial bombardment and ground offensive in Gaza in response to Hamas’ October 7 terror attack.

CNN interviewed seven eyewitnesses to the attack, tracking down relatives now scattered across the enclave, including Roba’s mother. Their testimonies were cross-referenced with hospital records, satellite imagery and dozens of videos and photos from the scene, reviewed by forensics and ballistic experts, who analyzed the damage to the building and injuries of the people found inside of it.

Taken together, the evidence reveals how the Abu Jibbas came under attack by Israeli forces without advance warning. It also suggests that some were killed by a massive bomb.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) told CNN they were responding to enemy fire from the warehouse. One eyewitness said he heard what he called “resistance fire,” referring to fire from Hamas or another militant group, and local journalists reported “clashes” in the area that day. Eyewitnesses said there were no militants inside the warehouses where they were sheltering, and that they weren’t aware of Hamas operating in the area.

The families, she said, put up white flags – a universal sign of surrender – to indicate there were civilians there. She recounted that they wrote “displaced families” on the building.

CNN tracked down the owners of the warehouses where the Abu Jibba family was staying and another that hosted civilians across the street. Both said people from northern Gaza were living there for about two months before the attack.

Israeli drones and planes were constantly flying overheard, monitoring the area, Sumaya said. “They could see us. It was an open area, it was an open land, we would start fires and cook and bake bread… they knew it’s civilians.”

The testimonies collected by CNN and imagery of the damage to the building raise serious questions about whether the IDF made any efforts to avoid harm to civilians, and the proportionality of the attack.

Three weapons experts who analyzed the imagery for CNN said that a heavy munition, weighing as much as 2,000 pounds, was likely dropped on the warehouse.

Mark Hiznay, the associate arms director at Human Rights Watch, said the crater seen in the satellite image appeared to have been caused by a large, air-dropped bomb that detonated on impact. He said it was consistent “with a munition weighing 2,000 pounds.” Brian Castner, a weapons investigator at Amnesty and former explosive ordnance disposal officer, also said the crater was most likely caused by a 2,000-pound bomb.

An analysis by CNN and artificial intelligence company Synthetaic in December found that Israel had used hundreds of 2,000-pound bombs in the first month of its war in Gaza. The heavy munitions, which leave impact craters over 12 meters (40 feet) in diameter, are capable of killing or wounding people up to 365 meters (about 1,198 feet) away.

Reviewing photographs of the destroyed warehouse, Patrick Senft, a research coordinator at the Armament Research Services (ARES), came to a similar conclusion. Senft said that the destruction was “consistent with the effects of a munition generating substantial blast effects, such as an aerial bomb weighing several hundred kilograms.”

Even posting pictures of kids that were killed is bullshit.

Roba Abu Jibba’s siblings Al-Zain, 10, and Ali, 13, were killed.

Oh, two kids were killed?

Try at least 20,000, and probably a lot more.

These Jews have to be punished.
