i could not sleep, as the naval operation continued for more than 3 hours, against Gaza Beach, and mainly south of the beach , as they try to search the wreckage of the destroyed Israeli jet fighter many successive shelling non stop , i was awake, as were most people of the city
Good to be in touch with friends on the Facebook, some comfort feeling that i am not completely alone feeling unsafe and tense, the power is on, 6 am decided to switch off and get some sleep then all of a sudden 4 large explosions in the center of the town bang bang bang and bangggggggggggggggggg

Gaza 6 15am Sunday
4 big explosions in the center of Gaza city, by f16, hit the Saraya governmental compound that has been completely destroyed during the cast lead operation 2008, now it is empty land surrounded with residential building, crowded homes , what is the aim? more than terrifying of the civilians and tens of homes have been partially damaged!
look i think the Israelis have lost their compass, and their mission in Gaza is mission impossible! great failure despite of our lives and property loss, we have nothing to lose but our chains. love you all and remember we are here to stay and steadfast we are occupied and freedom fighters , we are not victims we are on the path to freedom.
i have not slept for continuous 3 nights and days
love you all

again and again no respect by Israel, for health human rights, just heard now about the shelling next to the European hospital in Khan younis, where the hospital emergency room was largely damaged, patients terrified, this is not new practice by the occupying Israeli army, ambulances , hospitals and emergency health teams were targeted directly, and in most of the cases health teams were not allowed to reach the casualities, when fraction of a second means a lot for life saving
iam not tired of reporting this, will continue and continue, never lose faith, that the oppressor are one and we are many, with your solidarity we will all enjoy peace and justice, right now i want this attack to stop NOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW
