The two killed in the Rafah bombing were identified as:

1. Najah Sa’ad al-Deen Daraji, 65, Rafah.
2. Abdullah Yusef Daraji, 3, Rafah.

Also in Rafah on Sunday morning, a teenager was killed and his father critically injured in their home, which was targeted by Israeli soldiers:

Four people in the same family were killed in a bombing at Al-Bureij camp, including a father and his twelve year old son:
