Dear Editors, Journalists and Friends,

Thousands of people appeared on the Gaza streets. Everybody is trying to explore what has happened to his relatives, houses and areas. I have documented a massive devastation throughout east, north and west of Gaza Strip.

The devastation storms everything needed for normal life. Houses, schools, hospitals, clinics, police stations, charities, universities and streets totally and partially destroyed.

More than 100 dead corps were found today by paramedics mostly civilians and a family of 8 members. Samouni family which was massacred before found 17 more dead bodies under the rubbles. Many families still seek rest of members and relatives who were lost during the war time.

Haaretz: Israeli Army ‘Fighting Against a Helpless Population’

18 01 2009

TEL AVIV, January 17, 2008 (WAFA)- Haaretz Israeli daily newspaper said that the fighting in Gaza is ‘child’s play;’ pilots bombing unimpeded as if on practice runs, tank and artillery soldiers shelling houses and civilians from their armored vehicles, combat engineering troops destroying entire streets in their ominous protected vehicles without facing serious opposition. ‘A large, broad army is fighting against a helpless population.’

The Daily added that about a third of those killed in Gaza have been children. ‘This is too large a proportion by any humanitarian or ethical standard,’ Haaretz commented.

It is enough to look at the pictures coming from Shifa Hospital to see how many burned, bleeding and dying children now lie there. History has seen innumerable brutal wars take countless lives, the Paper continued. But the horrifying proportion of this war, a third of the dead being children, has not been seen in recent memory.

Finally, the Paper said that ‘the children of Gaza who survive this war will remember it.’ It is enough to watch Nazareth-born Juliano Mer Khamis’ wonderful movie ‘Arna’s Children’ to understand what thrives amid the blood and ruin we are leaving behind.

Daily Feed About Gaza War:

1-Israeli air strike hit the eastern part of Gaza City. Many houses were harmed partially.
2-Israeli air forces raided on a United Nations’ school northern Gaza, town of Bait Lahia. A woman and two children were killed and many wounded. Tens of people came to take the school as a shelter but it was hit!
3- Two Palestinians killed in east of Rafah City. Invading tanks destroyed sevetal houses and arrested some residents.
4-Three Palestinians killed by Phosphorous bombs fall down in many places in north of Gaza.
5- Two Palestinians killed after being injured in Khan yonis and their father was wounded. Here is an email I got from the friends of the family before they know what has happened to them!
Family Friend,
I am writing to make a request for a good friend from Gaza (Amer Shurrab, UWCAD ’01–03, Middlebury College ‘08.5). He just found out his father and two brothers were attacked while returning home from their farm during the 3-hr ceasefire. One brother (Kassab Shurrab) died, but the father (Mohammed Shurrab -64) and the remaining brother (Ibrahim-17) are now wounded and stranded in an Israeli Defense Force (IDF) controlled area. It’s been 16 hours and emergency services are unable to reach them. The ambulances cannot travel there without permission from the IDF, and local aid groups claim that soldiers are blocking their access.

We have spoken with the local Red Cross in Khan Yunis and they have been trying to get the IDF’s permission to get to the family, but have not been allowed. What we are asking, is if you could help by using any of your contacts (in the area and/or region, with NGOs, HR groups,media, etc), to bring attention and pressure in order to get permission for the ambulances to save two lives. We are very desperate and trying as many avenues as possible to help aid reach them. If you know even a foot soldier who might be able to push the ball by calling a local commander we would really appreciate any help.

His father and brother are located at:
In front of Supermarket Abu Zidan El-Najar
El Fukhari (neighbourhood)
Khan Yunis (town)

We truly appreciate any help at this time, thank you for your time.
