Jihad Misharawi, a BBC Arabic correspondent who lives in Gaza, tragically became part of the story he's been covering on Wednesday, when an Israeli airstrike killed his 11-month-old son.

A chilling photo showing Misharawi carrying his son's body through al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City was published by the Associated Press and printed on the front page of Thursday's Washington Post.

According to Paul Danahar, the BBC's Middle East bureau chief, Misharawi's sister-in-law was also killed in the the airstrike that hit his home in Gaza. Misharawi's brother was also seriously wounded, Danahar said.

"This is a particularly difficult moment for the whole bureau in Gaza," BBC World editor Jon Williams wrote in a memo to colleagues. "We're fortunate to have such a committed and courageous team there. It's a sobering reminder of the challenges facing many of our colleagues."

At least 10 Palestinians, including Hamas military chief Ahmed al-Jabari, were killed during the Israeli airstrikes on Wednesday, Palestinians officials said.

Israel launched the operation in response to successive days of rocket fire coming out of Gaza. Hamas, meanwhile, warned Jabari's assassination "had opened the gates of hell."

no. you are human, just like me, just like anyone here. most of all you are a mother. and a mother should not think the death of a child is okay just because of who their parents are

i don't like dzyre or zilla or bird, but if their children were to be killed i couldn't sit there and say "well you should have done this, not that."

i would have sympathy. why can't you afford that much?

So let me point blank ask- Do you support the killing of Israeli killing to support the Palestinian cause, to end the Occupation of Palestine?

For some reason there is a typo. I meant to ask- Do you support the killing of Israeli children to support the cause, to end the occupation of Palestine?
