Six young girls killed in Gaza are related to Tampa family

Sean Kinane about almost 6 years ago

An 18-year-old Tampa man who has dozens of extended family members in the Gaza Strip learned Sunday that six of his nieces died in an Israeli airstrike. Yusuf Dabus said the girls were killed in a strike on a Mosque near their home.

Dabus was born in the U.S. and when he was young moved to the same neighborhood in Gaza where his nieces were killed this week. In fifth grade his family moved back to the U.S. But that was before some of his nieces were even born.

Dabus said he hopes that all war will end.
