Abu Daqqa is Palestinian, but his wife and four children have been living in Flanders for five years after fleeing Palestine. His family and friends gathered at their home in Scherpenheuvel-Zichem. They are in shock and want to sue Israel before the International Criminal Court.

Zain, the photographer’s 15-year-old son, was the last person to call him. He tells this about the coat his father wore when he came to Belgium. “It smells like him,” the young man told VTM NIEUWS. “My father did nothing wrong,” sighs his 18-year-old brother, Yazan. “He was just filming. He was a journalist.”

Samer Abu Daqqa was seriously injured while he was reporting at a school in the town of Khan Yunis. It took more than five hours for help to arrive because the ambulance was not allowed to pass. He didn’t do that. His colleague who was with him survived. He is the journalist who not long ago discovered live on television that his family had been killed after an air strike on his home.
