"What do you want to be, a jihadist or to execute a martyrdom [suicide] operation?"
10 year old Abdullah Alathamna. In 2006 Israeli rockets targeted his home. In a blink, he lost his mother, two sisters and his right foot. A nonprofit organization treated him in LA and he was fitted with an artificial leg.
Today he is 15. On Friday night, Abdullah’s home was once again struck by Israeli bombs. Shrapnel lodged in his back and in his left leg. It also damaged his prosthetic leg, making it unusable. His family was able to escape but Abdullah was unable to walk and his father and grandfather took turns carrying him. For the last several days the family has been living in their car outside a United Nations-run school in the refugee camp of Jabaliya which is also under constant threat of Israeli targetting.

A beautiful gesture from Lebanon - names of Palestinians killed by Israel in the last two weeks were hung on huge banners in Raouché, Beirut during a demonstration against the latest Zionist assault on Gaza, July 22, 2014. Protesters also threw flowers into the sea. Over 600 people have been killed (as of the morning of July 23, 2014), at least 25% of whom were children.

A piece of paper found in the pocket of Hammoudeh Ali who died earlier today following an Israeli rocket attack. Written on it is his name along with the names of two people whom he owes 10 shekels to in case he died.
This is how inhumane the situation is in Gaza. People are walking around expecting death by rocket fire at any second.
