Osama was only 10 years old. Ahmed was only 6. Salah was 3.
These three children were murdered in a barrage of 60 bullets.
These three children were murdered in Gaza by Hamas gunmen.
They were the children of Baha Baloushah, a high level Fatah security official.
The kids were on their way to school in a car driven by a bodyguard.
It was a day just like every day - until they were brutally murdered.
This was not a case of mistaken identity.
The children were the target, not their father.
This is not about Israel.
This is about power and control and money, about Hamas versus Fatah.
This violence and the culture of violence are stimulated by revenge, honor and a need for retribution.
Hamas will not act to bring these murderers to justice - it would violate a Hamas principle of honor and affiliation.
It may sound more like South America or Iraq but it is Gaza.
It is another horrific example of Arabs murdering Arabs.
There will be many more murders like this, tensions are escalating.
Targeting children is for bottom feeders - it defines this conflict.
This is just the beginning of mass murders in Gaza.
