    Gaza Artist Turns Israeli Air Strike Smoke into Powerful Sketches

    As the world looks on with horror at the growing civilian toll in Gaza, and Hamas and Israel consider the terms of a U.S.-proposed ceasefire, one young Palestinian architect is responding to the crisis through art. Gaza-based Tawfik Gebreel aims to send a message, in the “universal humanitarian language understood by all peoples of the world.” He is using photos of the smoke thrown up by rocket strikes and reworking the images with symbols of hope and unity.

    Israel Destroys Entire Gaza Neighborhood In An Hour

    July 29th, 2014

    An entire Gaza neighborhood is decimated within an hour by Israeli air strikes. The video is further proof that Israel has no regard for the life of innocent Palestinians.

    Israel attacked Gaza’s only power plant on Tuesday, leaving the Palestinian territory’s 1.8 million residents with no electricity or running water and opened the possibility of an even graver humanitarian crisis.

    After three weeks of violence between Israel and Gaza, more than 1,100 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli air and ground strikes. About 75 percent of Palestinian deaths have been civilians. Several thousand have been wounded and more than 100,000 displaced. Fifty-three Israeli soldiers have died, as well as three civilians.

    Just look at the casualties. This is not a war, it is genocide.

    Doctors and medics mourn the loss of their fellow medic, 32 year old Mohammad Matar, who was targeted by Israeli shelling while performing his duty in helping the injured in Khan Yunis, Gaza. 

    It’s important to know that many of these medics and doctors have not been paid in months especially with the current Israeli genocide in Gaza. Many of the medics are volunteers and are operating in inhumane conditions, at times working 20 hour shifts to provide immediate care to the overwhelming number of injuries caused by Israel’s constant deliberate and indiscriminate rocket fire on civilians.
