Palestine: The Earth is Closing in on Us

Laila writes: The shells keep falling. They’ve gotten inside my head. It’s like someone is banging a gong next to my ear every few minutes; sometimes 5 times a minute, like last night. And just when I savor a few moments of silence, it starts again as if to say “you're not going to get away that easily.”

Today they killed 8-year-old Hadil Ghabin.

A shell landed on her home in Beit Lahiya, killing her and injuring 5 members of her family, including Hadil's pregnant mother, Safia, and her 19-year-old sister.
