Palestinian girl, 6, pulled alive from rubble after airstrike demolishes her home – video

A six-year-old Palestinian girl was found deep inside a pile of rubble, after her home was destroyed by an Israeli strike in Gaza that killed her mother and all four of her siblings.

Suzy Eshkuntana, trapped for seven hours under the debris, was reunited in Shifa hospital with her father, who was also being treated for his wounds. The family’s home was hit in Israeli air strikes early on Sunday in Gaza City, a wave of attacks that Gaza health officials said killed 42 people including 10 children and raised the death toll in Gaza from a week of bombardment to more than 200.

Israel says it is attacking the militant Islamist Hamas movement that controls the densely populated Gaza Strip and that – along with Islamic Jihad and other militant groups – has fired more than 3,000 rockets towards Israeli towns and cities, where 10 people have been killed, including two children
