Six year-old Hind Rajab found dead in Gaza days after plea for help

Israel has launched further air strikes on the Gaza border town of Rafah. Over a million Palestinians who’ve fled there are now awaiting a military offensive.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office said it has ordered the military to plan the evacuation of Rafah and to destroy four Hamas battalions it believes are deployed there.

Elsewhere the perils facing those who try to flee in Gaza were illustrated by the discovery of the body of six year-old Hind Rajab, twelve days after she went missing in Gaza City.
