He mentioned that the lost his brother in the 2014 war along with many relatives:
In 2014, during the last war, Israel killed my brother Hamada; it destroyed my apartment when it brought down the family home that housed 40 people. It killed my wife’s grandfather, her brother, her sister and her sister’s three kids.
Why would Israel target his apartment?
Well, because Refaat Alareer’s brother was a Hamas operative, and he was holed up in the apartment with a fellow Hamas terrorist – effectively holding the family hostage as human shields.
He was killed along with Musab al-Ajlah, another Hamas terrorist.
