On Wednesday, the wife, son, daughter and grandson of Wael Dahdouh, a veteran Al-Jazeera correspondent in Gaza, were killed in an Israeli strike. The Israeli military says it only strikes militant targets and accuses Hamas of operating among civilians in densely-populated Gaza. That is more than three times the number of Palestinians killed in the six-week-long Gaza war in 2014.
