The eight-year-old Nawar Anwar Al-Awlaqi, who was visiting her uncle, was hiding in a room when it was attacked by the gunships. “Some of the gunfire went through the windows and Nawar was injured in her neck,” her uncle Abdelilah al Dahab said.
The girl would not survive. “We tried to save her but we couldn’t do anything for her,” said Abdelilah al Dahab. “She was injured around 2.30am and bled until she died at around dawn prayers.”
