The Abu Is’ayid Family On a July evening in 2010, the Abu Is’ayid family suffered a deadly attack by Israeli forces on their home in Gaza’s access restricted area (ARA) near the border between the Gaza Strip and Israel.
The family, who work in agriculture and have lived on and farmed the land for generations, underwent a second devastasting attack by Israeli forces just over one year later.
Seeking justice and accountability for the attacks on their home that resulted in the death of mother of five, Ne’ma Yousif Abu Is’ayid, and the destruction of the family home, the Abu Is’ayid family initiated the legal process before the Israeli District Court in Beersheba, Israel, and with Israel’s military investigative mechanisms.
