Previous balances mentioned 15 dead.
For its part, Israel attributed the death of several kids in Jabalia (in the north of the Gaza Strip) to a missed shot from a rocket launched by the Islamic Jihad organization against Israeli territory.
“Israeli security forces have not carried out any shelling in Jabalia in the last few hours. It is irrefutably proven that this incident is the result of the missed firing of a rocket launched by Islamic Jihad.” the Israeli government said in a statement.
