Sixteen Christians killed in air raid on Gaza

An air raid on Gaza has destroyed a Church building killing Christians who were sheltering there.

At least 16 Christians, including 10 from one family, were killed during an attack on Thursday evening, which provoked the total collapse of a building in the compound of the Greek Orthodox Church.

According to Aid to the Church in Need’s project partners another 15 Christians are trapped under the debris.

The Church of Saint Porphyrios itself was not hit.

About 400 people, mostly Christians, have been sheltering in the compound since the start of the armed conflict.
