At approximately 7:30am on Tuesday, 29 July 2014, Israeli warplanes attacked a residential building in the Al Mahatta area in Khan Younis city. The four-storey building is owned by Karam Mohammed Al Dali and is about 400 square meters in area. Five families (Abu Amer, Al Najjar; Breeka and Mu'ammar) were living in rented apartments  in the building. The building was completely destroyed over the heads of its residents. A number of adjacent buildings were severely damaged in the attack. Medical and Civil Defence (fire brigade) crews rushed to the site. The crews managed to recover 34 bodies and 27 injured people.

The members of the Abu Amer families went to the Al Dali building to look for shelter and were staying in a kindergarten in the building. The two families of Ahmed (5 children) and his sister 'Orouba (5 children) were totally wiped out. It was the deadliest attack on a residential building of the 2014 Israeli military offensive on the Gaza Strip.
