A real story about a real Gazan from “Activists around the world for Palestine”
“My 3-year-old nephew in Gaza, Abdallah, is a funny boy. He is very scared of the bombs and the constant shelling. But he told me that now he has a technique to calm himself down. He goes under his bed, closes his ears and starts shouting so that his voice would cover the sound of bombs and rockets. Today, he has a more creative solution: “When the missile comes to our house I hope my strong and big parents will hit it and push it away. But if that doesn’t work then I will give it all my chips, sweets, and candies so that he won’t hit me.”

With less reporters, less people are getting crucial information and truth about Gaza.
