WW~Notes: The IDF is the most cowardly army in the entire world when they resort to murdering children in cold blood on a hospital playground or in a public park.
Zionist tank fire killed a four-year-old boy in the northern Gaza Strip on Monday, the first martyr since the Zionist entity and Hamas began observing an unofficial lull.
According to emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra, the child was martyred when a shell hit a house to the east of Jabaliya. The boy, Samih Ijneid, was the first person to be killed in Gaza on Monday although three others also succumbed to their injuries during the night, Qudra said.
The latest deaths raise to 1,036 the total number of Palestinians martyred in the Israeli aggression on Gaza.

Israeli occupation army on Monday bombed a park near the beach in Gaza City as well as al-Shifa hospital, killing at least 10 children on the first day of the Eid al-Fitr holiday, medics said.
14 Palestinians were also martyred late Monday as the Israeli army shelled different areas in Gaza.
The strike on the park hit a playground beside the al-Shati refugee camp, while the other strike hit the outpatient clinic of al-Shifa Hospital, which is the main hospital in the besieged coastal enclave.
The strike killed 10 children as they were playing with their families while wearing holiday clothes they had been given to celebrate the end of the holy Muslim month of Ramadan.
Eyewitnesses said that 40 were also injured in the strike, which some were calling an “Eid massacre.”
Director of reception at al-Shifa Hospital Ayman al-Sahbani said that a total of 10 children’s bodies had arrived at the hospital as a result of the two strikes. It was unclear how many casualties had come as a result of the attack on the hospital.
Thousands of Palestinians have taken refuge in the al-Shifa Hospital, as 130,000 have fled their homes.
Israeli shelling killed seven Palestinians and injured over 50 others in Jabaliya earlier on Monday amid a relative lull in fighting compared to previous days.
Another Palestinian, meanwhile, succumbed to his wounds, while seven bodies were recovered in Khuzaa in the eastern Gaza Strip as medical teams took advantage of the calm to retrieve bodies from the rubble of the heavily bombarded neighborhood.
Monday’s attacks brought the total Palestinian death toll to over 1,065, with more than 6,250 injured.
