Born during 2009 "Cast Lead" operation. Murdered during 2012 "Pillar of Defense" operation. Mohammad was sleeping in his room in Zeytoun neighbourhood on the outskirts of Gaza City when a drone missile struck his home, killing him almost immediately. The first rocket attack was shortly followed by a bomb dropped from an F-16 that destroyed the house while the family members were trying to escape. Two of his aunts - Nesma (20) and Saha (20) - were also killed, leaving behind two babies each.
On the night he was killed Mohammad had trouble sleeping because of the bombs and woke up a few times. His father Iyad then tried to settle him back to sleep, and after a few moments, the drone missile that killed him hit his home. As the family fled the building, his father tried to carriy his son to safety, not realizing he was already dead.
