An injured man in GazaTwenty-eight Palestinians were killed in the last 24 hours here, the horrible shelling is still going on, there is no food, no water, no electricity. No water for people to drink, the attack is getting worse, civilians are targeted everywhere by the Israeli Occupation Forces.

Heavy shelling is going on right now, My laptop battery is dying, more news coming later.

Hundreds arrived the hospital after being injured, the hospitals have no room for those who were killed. Bodies are thrown out in the streets. Israeli Occupation Forces re-occupy the former Jewish settlements and so far, a large number of tanks and bulldozers are attacking other new areas here.

All of northern Gaza is under siege, People are appealing to all human beings around the world to stop these attacks and to protect civilians from the Israeli US made F16 helicopters, tanks and bulldozers. .

Another funeralOn Thursday, Israeli Bulldozers devastated vast areas of arable lands in Beit Lahia and Khan Younis in the Gaza Strip. The war is still going on, and the Israeli Army is bombing everywhere in the Gaza Strip. This aims only to terrify the children, women and old men sleeping in their houses.

A Palestinian woman, 56, told me ' I don't know why the world is still silent. Until when? They are killing us inside our homes. For the sake of God and all our children, please intervene and stop killing us in Gaza.' She was hiding inside her house and talking from a window of a kitchen, terrified of getting out of her house.

The number of people who were killed is increasing from one minute to the next. Now tens of people have been injured and killed in the north of Gaza. No water, no food, no electricity ... everything is under siege. The woman told me: "We have not been able to go to our farms and get vegetables to cook for the children." There was shooting towards us as she was speaking to me.

A Palestinian boy injured while inside his house in Gaza.Israeli bulldozers began devastating agricultural lands here in Al Salateen area, west of Beit lahia and seized a house, turning it into a military post, used by Israeli soldiers as snipers.

Three bulldozers also razed wide area of olive trees and planted lands owned by Abu Anza and Abu Rjeila families in al Faraheen area, east Khan Younis refugee camp. The situation is getting worse all over in the southern and northern parts of the Gaza strip.

The children here are appealing to you and to everyone who will listen to stop this attack. The children are born to live and not to die by Israeli shelling which does not diffeneciate between targeting a child, a woman or even and old man praying in a mosque.

Gaza under attackTwo journalists were injured, both working for Al Jazeera TV, and some ambulance workers have also been targeted by the Israeli Army. In addition, the educational buildings, of the Islamic university, where I studied last semester was also the hardest hit by Israeli F 16s. An orphanage has been also been bombed.

 

It is quite horrible here, and the bombing is still going on. Right now, a new rocket hit a building close by.. more news coming later when my laptop batteries are charged again.
