Missiles have struck several sites in Gaza, including a park inside a refugee camp and an outpatient building of the strip’s largest hospital, disrupting a relative lull at the start of the Muslim Eid al-Fitr holiday.

Eight people, including seven children, died following missile fire on a park inside the Shati refugee camp on the edge of Gaza City, medics said.

The children were playing on a swing when the strike hit the park, Ayman Sahabani, the head of the emergency room at Shifa hospital, told reporters.

Munzer al-Derby, 35, who witnessed the strike, told Al Jazeera: “The kids were playing on the wheel… A rocket fell and cut them apart.”

info-pictogram1 This plant, located in Ashikaga Flower Park in Japan, is certainly not the largest in the world, but it still comes in at an impressive 1,990 square meters (or half an acre) and dates back to around 1870 (the largest, at about 4,000 square meters, is the wisteria vine in Sierra Madre, California). Although wisterias can look like trees, they’re actually vines. Because its vines have the potential to get very heavy, this plant’s entire structure is held up on steel supports, allowing visitors to walk below its canopy and bask in the pink and purple light cast by its beautiful hanging blossoms.

Brave jogger dubbed a hero after fighting off sex beast who was attempting to rape girl in Glasgow park

A MAN has been hailed a hero after he came to the rescue of a woman who was about to be raped.

Abdull Oun, 27, heard the victim’s cries for help as he jogged round Kelvingrove Park in Glasgow’s west end.

The brave nightclub doorman sprinted to the scene and knocked out the beast with a flying kick.

The Daily Record tracked down Abdull after the victim, who does not wish to be identified, got in touch with us.

She said: “He is a hero, a gentleman and my saviour.

“It’s like he woke me up from a very bad dream. I just wanted to send out a big thank you for his heroism and hope there are more people like him in this world.”

The woman was heading home after a night out with friends at Kushion nightclub, in Bath Street, just before 2am on June 15.

She decided to walk to her west end home but as she went through the park the predator pounced.

She said: “I tried to fight my way out but he was too strong. I screamed but he put his hands on my mouth.

“I bit him and managed to scream again, yelling: ‘Help!’ Suddenly a chap wearing red shorts appeared from nowhere with a little black puppy.

“He fly-kicked the beast off me, which completely knocked him out.”

The woman said Abdull wanted to call the police but she told him she did not want to for fear of worrying her family.

She added: “He wanted to contact the police but I begged him not to.

“He saw my dress was ripped and gave me his jacket.” At this point the attacker came to and ran off. Abdull flagged down a cab and told the girl to get home safely.

She later discovered his driving licence inside his running jacket and got in touch with him to return it.

The Record tracked down modest Abdull and he verified the woman’s account of the attack. But he was quick to play down his own role.

Abdull said: “I don’t feel like I am a hero. It’s a man’s job to protect the innocent.

“If I see a person in danger then I will intervene. I would not want to ignore it and then read the next day that a woman had been raped or murdered.”
