Gaza resident recounts moment Israeli missile strikes his neighbourhood

Moayed al-Bahri recounted the moment an Israeli bomb struck his neighbourhood in Gaza. 

"I was sleeping when my wife woke me up to flee as Israel had warned our neighbour's house, the Banat family," Bahri, a resident in Beit Lehia, told Middle East Eye.

"Me and my neighbours had no choice but to flee. Men, women, young and old were screaming. The scene was terrifying. We fled far away to a house where our relatives live."

He noted that Israel had bombed the house with a "high explosive rocket", which caused heavy damage.
