Palestine: Mother of Prisoners

umkahlil reports that Farha Barghothy, a great popular poet, and one of the leaders of the Palestinian women movement, died on Saturday. Farah a.k.a. “Mother of prisoners“, kept reiterating before she died, “I want to see them before I meet my creator” of her two jailed sons in Ashkelon Israeli prison, Nael, the youngest, and his elder brother Omar.

On the other hand, umkahlil says that a 4-month old infant was injured as well as three women. One of the women was an elderly, when Israeli bombing by F16s targeted a free clinic.

Mohammad has some photos and update of the F16 bombing attack on Gaza.
