Pictures from Gaza

I am sitting tight in Gaza City, not straying far from my host family’s  apartment.  The damn drones have been buzzing around all day, and we have heard some blasts off in the distance.  Thankfully, it has been relatively quiet in our neighborhood today.

A friend in another part of the city posted some pictures of her friend’s house near a blast site yesterday.    She said I could share her photos which I think will help put some context to this horrible situation.   But none of these photos can capture the terrifying noise.

“My friend’s house at Gaza city after a huge pomping beside there house…. thanks God she and her family are ok but their house as you see in these photos has gone”- Hanan Qassem

Shops are closed on Saturday. No one on the streets in Gaza.

This normally busy street in Gaza is deserted on Saturday.
