At approximately 4:45 pm on Monday, 4 August 2014, an Israeli drone fired one missile targeting the house of Abdel Aziz Abdel Hadi Uweida that is located in the Al Brazil neighborhood in southeast Rafah. As a result, Mohammed Amjad Abdel Aziz Uweida, 13, and his sister Amal Amjad Abdel Aziz Uweida, 5, were killed. The children were on the roof of their grandmother's house.

Their family had fled their home since the beginning of the so-called 'Hannibal directive' was initiated by the Israeli forces in Rafah on 1 August 2014. They relocated to Tal Al Sultan neighborhood. At approximately 4:30 pm on Monday, the family decided to return to their home. They arrived their home just 15 minutes before the attack.
