In an action that can only be described as a terrorist murder, Israeli warplanes killed the wife and baby son of Hamas military commander Mohammed Deif, in a targeted air strike Tuesday night.

A Hamas spokesman confirmed the deaths of Widad Deif, 28 years old, and her baby son Ali, eight months, along with a third victim whose body was pulled from the rubble of the home in Gaza City. Palestinian sources told the media that the third victim was not Mohammed Deif, who has been the target of repeated Israeli assassination attempts over the past decade. Widad's three other children by Deif were injured in the attack but reportedly survived.

Eyewitnesses to the Tuesday night attack said that Israeli F-16 warplanes, supplied by the United States, dropped five bombs, destroying a three-story building, also killing the wife and two teenage sons of the building's owner, Raba al-Dalo.

The death toll from the relentless Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip has risen to 2,028, including at least 546 children. At least 20 were killed Tuesday night in the heaviest losses in nearly 10 days.

Besides the six killed in the home used by Mohammed Deif, seven members of the al-Louh family were incinerated in Deir al-Balah, including a pregnant woman. A drone-fired missile killed a three-year-old in the Zeitoun neighborhood of Gaza City, while another drone-fired missile killed two men driving in their car.
