The yard of Bi Shude's home in Jilin Province.
June 7, 2005 - Bi Shude, 46, from Jilin province in northeastern China and two Palestinian workers were killed when a Qassam rocket hit a packing shed in Ganei Tal, in the Gaza Strip.
A Qassam rocket hit a packing shed belonging to Amnon Ditor, a resident who grows chives, in Ganei Tal, in the Gaza Strip, penetrating the building's roof and exploding indoors. Just before the attack, Amnon Ditur had gone home for lunch, leaving his workers seated at a metal table, sorting fresh chives into bundles bound with rubber bands.
A Chinese worker and a Palestinian died on the spot; another Palestinian worker died of his wounds later and five other Palestinian workers were injured. The two Palestinians killed have been identified as Salah Ayash Imran, 57, of Khan Yunis, married and the father of 8, and Muhammed Mahmoud Jaroun. The Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the attack.
Bi Shude has worked in the Gaza Strip for a number of years, and his wife joined him in 2001, finding employment as a housekeeper.
The Chinese Embassy in Tel Aviv arranged for Bi's body to be flown home for burial. He is survived by his wife, as well as his son, 21, and married daughter, 23, who live in Xixiang Village, Jiangdian Town, Tonghua.
