Hamza Dahdouh, son of Al Jazeera’s Gaza bureau chief Wael Dahdouh, was killed in an Israeli air strike in the west of Khan Younis, the southern Gaza Strip, on Sunday.

The 27-year-old photojournalist was killed when a missile directly hit the vehicle he was traveling in. Dahdouh and his colleague Mustafa Thuraya were in the car at the time of being targeted. Thuraya also passed away in the attack.

Wael Dahdouh, 52, had lost his wife, daughter, grandson, and 15-year-old son in October in an Israeli air raid that hit the house they were taking shelter in.

Dozens of journalists have so far been killed in Israeli strikes since the war began on October 7.

Hamza and his colleagues were doing fieldwork, documenting the level of destruction that was caused by an overnight airstrike targeting a residential zone near the road that connects Khan Younis with Rafah.

Every airstrike has an aftermath. It does not only cause a great deal of damage to the targeted home, but also to the surrounding areas. Hamza and his team were documenting these crimes — destruction, displacement, and people under the rubble — when they were targeted.
