The infant son of a BBC journalist was killed by an Israeli air strike on Gaza on Wednesday night.
The BBC said that Jihad Misharawi, who works for the BBC Arabic service, lost his 11-month son Omar after their house was hit by shrapnel. Misharawi’s brother was also injured.
Violence in Gaza has intensified after Israel killed the military chief of Hamas on Wednesday. Omar was one of at least 15 Palestinians killed. Three Israelis have also died from rocket attacks.
