Colleagues and officials condemn killing of Yusef Abu Hussein, whose house in Gaza’s Sheikh Radwan neighbourhood was struck by Israeli missiles.
Palestinian journalist Yusef Abu Hussein has been killed in an Israeli air raid that struck his house in the besieged Gaza Strip, according to his family and colleagues.
Hussein, a broadcaster for the the local Voice of Al-Aqsa radio station, was among the four Palestinians killed in the early hours of Wednesday as Israel continued its relentless bombardment on the besieged enclave.
The journalist’s father, Muhammed Abu Hussein, said the family home in the Sheikh Radwan neighbourhood was targeted by a missile, followed by two more strikes.
“We were able to get out of the house. But my boy, Yusef … was killed,” he said.
