“Gaza is not the richest city and not the finest one. It is not the largest city, but, is equivalent to the history of a nation, because it is the most ugly in the eyes of the enemy, the poorest, the most desperate and the most aggressive.” HADEEL ABU MARIAM 

 

From my diary
Wednesday 14/11/2012, nearly 4:00pm, the Zionist entity assassinated Ahmad Aljabari, one of the commanders of Hamas, Alqassam brigades, the military wing. As a result Hamas military wing hit it back to the Zionist entity through firing rockets and missiles on the occupied land of 1948.
The Zionist entity found this a chance to raise voices in the next election, as usual by killing more and more Palestinians and destruction of infrastructure.

Thursday 15/11/2012 the Zionist entity destroyed completely two houses of two families in the north of Gaza, most of injuries were from children, they killed a child and young man in Khanyounis.
Even vacant lands had not been escape from the Zionist bombing, in all areas of Gaza strip.
Two injuries beside my home near the mosque of mydistrict in addition to two workers in the petrol station of the same district.
In alzaytoon district, a child of 9 months had been injured seriously, and two martyrs in the north of Gaza.
On the political level, the Zionist entity urged Egypt to intervene and end this conflict.

Friday 16/11/2012 , the martyrs became 18, including, five children , one pregnant woman, two old men in addition to 235 injuries, and all of them were civilians.
The Zionist raids continued heavily to destroy the security buildings.

Saturday 17/11/2012 the fourth day of Zionist attacks, there were a series of Zionist raids hit Gaza violently and destroyed the ministers council building in al nasr street, Arafat police building and the interior ministry building.
At the end of this day, martyrs became 45 and more than 350 injuries.
The night in Gaza is not like night in all over the world, its hours are hours of anticipation, as it brings a lot ofsurprises and hot events.
The Zionist attacks become more heavy and violent at night in order to make Palestinian people more fearful for their lives, but instead they are awake, drinking coffee, tea, analyzing every event of the Zionist entity and have a warm talks with each other.

Sunday 18/11/2012, the Zionist army announced that it will move to the second stage of the process against Gaza, this announcement had been published on the social communication networks since two days, which emphasized the psychological war that the Zionist entity try to launch it through Palestinians.
This morning was bloody and pale, the Zionist entity started destruction of civilians houses especially in the beach refugee camp in which a girl of 9 years and a man were killed.
The buildings of Palestinian media also were under the Zionist raids, one journalist lost his leg and six others were injured. The martyrs now are 55 most of them are children, old people and women.
Electricity still cut off for more than eight hours a day and people still struggling to be and still alive.

Gaza is not the most beautiful city, its coast is not more blue than the shore of Arab cities, its orange trees are not the most beautiful orange on the Mediterranean. Gaza is not the richest city and not the finest one. It is not the largest city, but, is equivalent to the history of a nation, because it is the most ugly in the eyes of the enemy, the poorest, the most desperate and the most aggressive. It has the ability to confuse the mood and comfort of the enemy. It is the nightmare and the mined orange for the enemy.
Gaza , where the children without childhood, without aging elders and women without desires, because all of the previous , it is the most beautiful, the most pure , the richest and the better love.
