Nilin youth dies following shooting by Israeli army in Gaza solidarity demo

01-01-2009 20:08

Dear members,

I'm writing you this message with the very sad news that tonight also Mohammad Khawajah (20 yrs old) died in Ramallah Hospital as a direct result of his severe injury.

Mohammad and Arafat were both shot (with live ammunition) by Israeli soldiers last sunday during a demonstration in solidarity with Gaza in Ni'lin. Arafat was shot in his heart (through his back) and died shortly after. Mohammad was shot in the back of his head and was brought to Ramallah Hospital. His injury was too severe to treat and this resulted in his death tonight.

Mohammad's funeral will be in Ni'lin tomorrow.

For more information, you can contact (tomorrow):
Hindi Mesleh: 0599 83 9843
Ahmad Mesleh: 0599 858 739

with respect,

Tales to tell ( from Gaza) Sunday December 28, 5.30am, Jabalia

28-12-2008 10:19

In the basement, the family begins the night at their allotted sleeping spaces,
but as the hours pass, draw closer together until women and children are
huddled together in a pile of blankets. The women have slept little, and look
exhausted. There are 5 or 6 children under the age of 5, touselled hair and
solemn faces. The oldest boy's face is pinched and distorted with anxiety.
Explosions are sporadic; sometimes far off, sometimes close. The drone of
Israeli aircraft is constant. Fragments of news come by the phone. Attack
beside Al Shifa hospital; windows break onto patients. Security and Protection
Forces attacked. Al Aqsa TV channel attacked. Plastic factory attacked. Al
Asaraya building. The number of dead increases in small leaps.

Israeli shelling of Gaza continues! Video from ISMers on the ground

Sunday 28th December, 2008

Shortly before 7:00am local time, yet another Israeli missile strike hit the residential neighbourhood of Hi Alijnina in the southern Gaza town of Rafah. This time a pharmacy was targeted, totally destroying the building and causing severe damage to surrounding homes. Electricity lines were torn down during the blast and the street was littered with medicines. This footage was filmed within minutes of the attack as fire fighters battled to control the blaze. Shocked residents poured into the streets, some still wearing pyjamas.
