Another massacre in Gaza
Overnight and into the morning, Israel committed another massacre in Gaza. Ambulances are blocked from reaching the effected areas so we still don’t know the full extent of the damage. Ma’an News Agency reports:
"At least 40 people have been killed and hundreds have been injured in the eastern neighborhood, medics said Sunday. The death toll is expected to rise as more bodies are uncovered."
As we write, the reports on the number of people killed increased to 60. Who knows how many by the time you read this message?
Here is an account from Dr. Mona El-Farra in Gaza City written in the early hours of the morning:
The Israeli tanks, airforce are bombing continuously. They are targeting Al-Shajaiya neighborhood [eastern part of Gaza City]. The airforce is flying planes very low and they are shelling houses. They are shelling everywhere, hitting many houses. People are dying. The Israeli occupation dehumanizes us by killing us while we are sleeping.
The ambulances are trying to reach the dead and injured and transfer them to hospitals but many ambulances couldn't pass.
Tens of wounded people, old and young, are stranded. The ambulances can't reach them to help them. Tens of bodies in the street or buried in the rubble. My friend Hani is a father in Al-Shajaiya and his wife is pregnant. He called me and told me that it's not possible for the ambulance to reach them. He is scared that they will die there before the ambulance reaches his family because there is bombing everywhere.
The number of people killed is increasing every minute because medical teams can't reach the area and people are bleeding.
People are running, terrified in the streets.
Many families, many children are leaving the Al-Shajaiya neighborhood coming to Gaza's city center. Women, men, children walking and running. I can see a woman carrying her baby and terrified children around her. They are running to escape the smell of death.
The bombs and the shrapnel that are falling like rain on us are made and supported by your governments: England, USA, Australia, etc.
It is better to use these funds for health and education.
Which kind of humanity is this? Which kind of modern society is this?
This is what the Israeli occupation is doing and all the while using propaganda to try to hide the truth.
I call on everyone in this world don't say that you didn't know. I am telling you right now and you can hear me.
This occupation, this massacre, is protected by a silent world.
Wake up. Don’t remain silent.
