In Gaza city, as a result of a rocket attack, a tragedy occurred - two children, who were citizens of Ukraine, died. This unfortunate event was shared by Suspilne with reference to information provided by Oleg Nikolenko, speaker of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine.

It is worth noting that the Representative Office of Ukraine to the Palestinian National Administration, which is located in Ramallah on the West Bank, is currently studying the circumstances of this tragedy and is in contact with the relatives of the victims.

According to information, the two dead children are a brother and sister born in 2014 and 2017. Their identities have been established. Their mother, who is a citizen of Ukraine and originally from Kharkov, remains alive.. The circumstances of the shelling and the production of the missile have not yet been established.

According to information, since October 7, Israel has been conducting constant rocket attacks on the Gaza Strip in response to the breakthrough of militants of the Islamist Hamas movement to Israeli settlements, which led to massacres and kidnappings of more than 200 hostages. According to the Hamas-controlled Health Ministry, more than 5,000 residents of the sector have already died..

It is important to note that the rockets fired by Hamas into Israel sometimes miss their target and fall into the densely populated Gaza Strip..

Despite this, the evacuation of Ukrainian citizens from Gaza has not yet been carried out. Diplomatic efforts are now ongoing to organize the evacuation of Ukrainian citizens.

As of October 23, 349 Ukrainian citizens submitted a request for evacuation. These are mainly women who married Palestinian Arabs and have children born in Gaza.

In total, three Ukrainian citizens have already died in the Gaza Strip.

Earlier it was reported that a 24-year-old woman from Kharkov was killed as a result of an Israeli missile hit on October 17.

As of October 24, the total number of confirmed victims among Ukrainians in Israel is 19 dead, one more person is considered missing.

It is worth noting that the evacuation of Ukrainian citizens from Israel has already been carried out, and through the efforts of the Ukrainian government, the sending of citizens to Bucharest and Cluj was organized.
