Gaza diary: Are we not human?

From Mohammed Ali, a researcher for Oxfam who lives in Gaza City.

The air, the sea and the earth in Gaza City are now occupied by the Israeli military. They occupy Gazans’ minds, nerves and ears too.

In a bid to stop my children twitching, jerking, trembling and waking at every sound of an attack during their few hours of sleep and their many waking hours, I put cotton wool in their ears – it has not worked.

We ran out of fuel for our generator, which meant that we were confined to a small room filled with eleven people, with little light for three days.

We have not had water either; our well can only pump water if it has electricity which most of the Gaza Strip has been denied since this nightmare started.

What is happening is against humanity, are we not human?
