it's a ceasefire
just not on the beach, not in your home
*7 year old Ahmed Hassanin, shot in the head outside his home by Israeli soldiers from Gaza's eastern border, January 22nd.
On the 5th morning after Israel declared a 'ceasefire', Israeli gunboats began shelling, as they had on several mornings since halting the 22 day air and land bombardment of Gaza. The shelling, which began just after 7:30 am off Gaza city's coast, injured at least 6, including one boy with shrapnel in his head.
Yasser Abed, 15, came out from his home in Gaza's Beach camp, on the coast, to see where the shelling was occurring. A shard of shrapnel lodged in his forehead.
Nisreen al Quqa, 11, was out earlier, before the navy began to fire towards Palestinian fishermen. She and her brother were walking on the beach when the firing started. A piece of shrapnel lodged in her right calf muscle.
Other injuries included a 14 year old male who was hit in the thigh by one of the shrapnel fragments, a 35 year old male also with a shrapnel injury, and a 4 year old girl with a head wound from flying shrapnel.keep reading
