"We had to bury my father in a schoolyard nearby due to the intense bombing around Jabalia," Al-Sharif said.

"The occupation does not want the picture in Gaza to get out but we will continue in our coverage despite the blockade."

"I will continue to report on the crimes of the Israeli occupation against the Palestinians in the strip until my last breath," said Al-Sharif, who received previous threats from the Israeli army because he covered the war.

Anas Al-Sharif was the fourth Al Jazeera reporter in Gaza who lost family members in Israeli airstrikes on residential buildings in the strip since the start of the war.

On Wednesday, twenty-one members of Al Jazeera journalist Moamen Al-Sharafi's family, including his father, mother and several of his siblings, were killed in an Israeli bombing on a home also in the Jabalia refugee camp in northern Gaza.
