A Ukrainian woman has been killed by an IDF tank shell, a Gaza health official said Friday. She is the first foreign national to die in nearly two weeks of fighting. Dr. Moaiya Hassanain of the Gaza Health Ministry identified the woman as Olvera Al-Jarou. He said she was married to a Palestinian doctor who trained in Ukraine and returned with her to Gaza. He added that her two-year-old son was also killed in the strike Thursday east of Gaza City.
