Mother in Gaza: Staying Alive for Our Children Has Become a Mission

“If I said life since July 7 has literally been a prison, I wouldn't be exaggerating,” says 26-year-old Hadeya Kuhail. “My husband and I have to deal daily with the issue of expecting death. What if one of us is gone? We have agreed on someone to take care of our three kids if we both die. That is our main concern right now. Staying alive has become a mission in and of itself in this war we are living under.”

16-Year-Old from Gaza: We Can’t Go Back to How It Was Before

In a yearning for the quotidian, Farah proclaims that, “Life has become boring because I haven’t set foot on the sidewalk since July 7 because it’s so dangerous. I miss seeing my friends and hanging out. Life has become full of stress and fear because of the loud noise of the bombings, because Israeli warplanes randomly bomb civilians’ houses so I feel unsafe, and it's horrible to keep listening all the time to that sound you hate: that sound of the drones.”

On July 16, while I was in eastern Gaza City taking photos of the many buildings recently destroyed by Israeli forces, a man approached me and asked if I wanted to enter his home to take photos of the inside.

Testimony from Gaza: “You leave your home to die a thousand times, or refuse to leave and die once.”

"I'll tell you what is harder than dying in Gaza by an Israeli missile deluxe. What is harder is that you get a phone call from the Israeli army telling you to evacuate your home because it will be bombed in ten minutes. Imagine; ten minutes; and your whole short history on the surface of Earth will be erased."
