Monday Morning, the start of a new week in many countries, saw no new start in Gaza. After a brief calmness last night, the skies filled with the buzzing sounds of many drones and the roaring sounds of the F16’s. Loud explosions were heard clearly signalling the resuming of fresh attacks. Standing on the balcony,I saw the sky flash in to a blaze of orange, this was quickly followed by a report of a large explosion in Jabalia. A four storey house had just been hit, up to 25 people, mostly women and sleeping children and babies had been injured, Medic’s described the scene in Kamal Adwan hospital as distressing., and this is from medics who have seen many terrible things.
REPORTS COMING IN:
