Rahaf Ali Abu Assi, 2 months old, died on January 9, 2015 due to a severe cold near Khan Younis. She died of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease as a result of the winter storm Huda that hit the region.
Rahaf’s family lives east of Khan Younis in an area that was heavily damaged during Israel’s offensive on Gaza over the summer. “Her family reportedly continued living in their damaged home despite the destruction. Due to lack of alternative shelter, many of the nearly 110,000 Palestinians left homeless by Israeli bombardment have done the same, including many living in just tents.
The situation is aggravated by the lack of fuel for electric power, meaning that power is available roughly eight hours a day, with occasional cuts on top of that.
The lack of fuel is a result of Israel’s eight-year-old blockade of the Strip, which limits Palestinians’ ability to import fuel for the electric power station in Gaza as well as for domestic needs.”

Man and two infants freeze to death in Gaza
Published January 11th, 2015 – 07:04 GMT
Two Palestinian babies and a young man were found dead in Gaza on Saturday, bringing the total death toll in winter storm Huda to fourafter Palestinians in the tiny coastal enclave endured their coldest night of the storm yet.
On Saturday afternoon, a two-month-old baby girl was found dead in a shelter for the displaced in Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip.
A relative of the baby told Ma’an that two-month-old Salma Zeidan al-Masri was found dead in the Rashad al-Shawwa shelter in Beit Hanoun. The relative said the child had turned blue from the cold by the time she was found.
A young fisherman was also found dead in Gaza on Saturday, having perished due to the extreme cold.
Nizar Ayyash, head of the Gaza Fishermen’s Union, told Ma’an that Ahmad Sufian al-Lahham, 22, died while working on the shore west of Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip.
The deaths on Saturday afternoon came after a newborn was found dead earlier in the day. One-month-old baby Adil Maher al-Lahham succumbed to severe cold in his home in western Khan Younis.
Two-month-old infant Rahaf Abu Assi, meanwhile, died of severe cold on Friday in Rafah due to lung problems caused by the cold.
Her family was living in a home that was partially destroyed by Israel during bombardment over the summer.
In the four days since Storm Huda landed in the Holy Land, scores of families in Gaza have been evacuated from their homes due to flooding.
PATENTLY FALSE NARRATIVE, ORIGINAL HUMANIZE PALESTINE WEBSITE
ORIGINAL HUMANIZE PALESTINE WEBSITE
“Rahaf’s family lives east of Khan Younis in an area that was heavily damaged during Israel’s offensive on Gaza over the summer.”
“…110,000 Palestinians left homeless by Israeli bombardment…”
“…The situation is aggravated by the lack of fuel for electric power…”
“The lack of fuel is a result of Israel’s eight-year-old blockade of the Strip…”
Three babies and a fisherman perished due to extreme cold, the result of winter storm Huda. They did not die because the Gaza war left them homeless. They did not die because of a lack of fuel. They died as a result of hypothermia during a winter storm, deaths that are frequently observed globally during similar weather events. Each death was the result of unique circumstances relating to extreme cold during a winter storm. If the babies deaths were the result of homelessness or a fuel shortage during a winter storm, there would be many more than three dead babies.
Why not blame the death of the young fisherman on Israel as well?
