Horror in Gaza under siege and military attack / L'Horreur a Gaza assiegée et attaquée de tous cotés


(c) Anne Paq/, Gaza, 14.11.2012

 Gaza is under attack from all sides, including the sea.

 There are news of 8 martyrs and dozens injured, some of them very serious.

As I write now, I am back in my home. While I was editing pictures I could hear the scary sound of the bombs. The street was soon empty of cars and there is almost no light. I moved far from the window which can get easily smashed of some explositions happened nearby. In Al Shifa hospital that was total chaos with so many injured persons kept coming in. 
When I arrived to the section where they treated the burned persons, some women collapsed in grief, they just found out that Omar jihad Masharawi, 1 year old baby just died of his wounds. One of the women was her mother.
I went up with other photographers, i cannot describe what I saw with words, and neither can I post the grim pictures of a burned baby. This is just horrific.

Later the father carried Omar to the morgue, crying his eyes out. I went home. I feel nervous, with the news coming about more attacks, more injured. There is Nowhere to escape in Gaza.

Israel is attacking a civilian population that has committed no crimes than being Palestinians. Dont tell me about the rockets., Palestinians have been dispossessed of most of their lands in 1948,  the occupation started in 1967, rockets only started in 2001.  

Now please ACT. Israel if there is a BIG international pressure can still back down.  

I cant sleep and cant take the image of Omar out of my head. Why did Omar has to die?


Gaza est la cible d'attaques de tous les côtés, y compris de la mer.

On compte deja 8 martyrs et des dizaines de blessés, dont certains très graves.
Au moment où j'écris maintenant, je suis de retour chez moi. Alors que je faisais la selection des photos j'entendais le bruit effrayant des bombes. La rue fut bientôt vide de voitures et il n'y a presque pas de lumière. J'ai bougé loin des fenêtres qui peuvent facilement être brisées si certains explositions arrivent à proximité. Dans l'hôpital Al Shifa c'était le chaos total avec un flot continue de blessés.

Quand je suis arrivée à la section où ils traitent les personnes brûlées, certaines femmes se sont effondrées de chagrin, elles venaient d'apprendre qu' Omar jihad Masharawi, un bébé de 1 an vennait de mourir de ses blessures. Une des femmes était sa mère. une autre sa grand-

Je suis allée le prendre en photos avec d'autres photographes, je ne peux pas décrire ce que j'ai vu avec des mots, et je ne peux non plus publier ces images d'un bébé brûlé. C'est l horreur la plus totale.
Plus tard, le père d'Omar l'a porté jusqu'a la morgue, en pleurant tous les larmes de son coeur, suivi d'une foule en colere.

Je suis rentree chez moi. Je me sens nerveuse avec toutes les nouvelles d'autres attaques. Il n'y a nulle part pour s'échapper à Gaza.

Israël attaque la population civile qui n'a commis aucun crime autre que d'être Palestiniens. Ne me parlez pas des roquettes., Les Palestiniens ont été dépossédés de la plupart de leurs terres en 1948, l'occupation a commencé en 1967, des roquettes n'ont commencé qu'en 2001.

Maintenant, s'il vous plaît agissez. Israël si il ya une grosse pression internationale peut encore reculer.

Je ne peux pas dormir et ne peux pas chasser l'image d'Omar hors de ma tête. Pourquoi Omar devait-il mourir?

    Exactly; but the provocateurs are the occupiers, the invaders, those who steal their neighbour's resources and imprison them inside a barren land. The Brits did the same thing in Ireland. Remember an gorta mor?

    In France, there is mobilizing against this terrorist state Israel

    Against endless ethnic cleansing conducted by a state that refuses to define its borders.

    Against the siege of Gaza for several years.

    Against the bombing of civilians by Israel, Beirut in 2006, Gaza in late 2008 and early 2009,

    Against the current bombing of Gaza.


    The Israeli army occupied southern Lebanon for 22 years from 1978 to 2000, practicing torture on a large scale.

    The massacre of Sabra and Chatila (the name of two Palestinian refugee camps in West Beirut) was perpetuated in 1982 as a partnership between the Israeli army and the Lebanese Christian militias.

    Israel was again attacking Lebanon in 2006. Leaving landmines on large parts of Lebanese territory and refusing, long after the end of the war, to give the card. Many farmers and children will lose their lives.

    Israel never signed the Treaty against nuclear proliferation.

    Never IAEA (International Atomic Energy) is only concerned by the danger of this over-armed state for the neighboring countries.

    Israel is a state that has invested in the manufacturing of hatred.


  4. I am deepluy shocked by some of the responses to these searing photographs.
    In 2011, the projectiles fired by the Israeli military into Gaza have been responsible for the death of 108 Palestinians, of whom 15 were women or children .

    Through September 2012, Israeli weaponry caused 55 Palestinian deaths and 257 injuries. Among these 312 casualties, 61, or roughly 20 percent, were children and 28 were female. It is important to note that these figures do not represent a totality of Israeli projectiles fired into Gaza but rather only Israeli projectiles fired into Gaza which cause casualties. The total number of Israeli projectiles fired into Gaza is bound to be significantly larger.
    We are constantly told how many missiles were fired from Gaza into Israel. How many were there from Israel into Gaza? Do the IDF not keep a tally? Or is it too amny to count?
