Ottawa Woman The 4th Canadian Killed in Israel

A Canadian woman with deep roots in Ottawa was among Canadians killed in the conflict in Israel, CBC News reports.

The mayor of Ottawa, Mark Sutcliffe, has spoken to the family of the deceased but decided not to reveal her identity.

Two Canadians have been confirmed dead, and one is presumed dead as a result of the conflict. This makes it the fourth Canadian killed in the conflict. 

The Palestinian militant group Hamas staged an attack on Israel last weekend, firing rockets, killing civilians and taking hostages. 

The attack prompted Israel to declare war on Hamas with attacks of its own. Israel has also ordered what it has described as a complete siege of Gaza, blocking everything from electricity and fuel to food and water from entering.

May the souls of the departed rest in peace!
