#GazaUnderAttack| Photos: A trauma in my neighborhood as IOF attack a car behind my house killing one and injuring another

Today, at around 2:30 pm, I witnessed one of the most horrifying scenes, not on TV, but with my own eyes. I will never forget the massive sound that hit the car behind my house. I still can hear it resonating in head.

I was laying down under my blanket feeling exhausted, desperate to fall asleep after almost 6 six days of continuous bombings on Gaza. I remember exactly how I heard the missile falling, like a whistle. I closed my eyes right, shut my ears  hard with both hands and waited to hear the explosion. I’ve been having this moment of horror for uncountable times since Wednesday.

This time was different though. The dearest people to my heart, my family and I, were few meters away from being murdered. The rocket hit right behind my house.

As I heard the rocket hitting, I got up in panic as  the house was still shaking and Mum was screaming, wandering around herself, traumatized. Dad rushed outside. I could see the fire flames from my window, the smoke filling the sky. It smelled very bad. The speakers of the mosque behind my house started shouting at people not to be crowded near the target, fearing another attack. We realized that a car was targeted and another car that was driving behind got seriously destroyed.

Within minutes, the fire service and the ambulances arrived. The people in the neighborhood were all outside, looking in silence while staring at this atrocious crime. I saw men crying as the paramedics were collecting the pieces of Hussam Abdeljawad’s body who was the victim of this attack. He was torn to pieces, spread all over the street. The street was stained with his blood. I was too traumatized while watching all this happening that I couldn’t shed even one tear. I was about to burst though.

One man, Fadel Jouda, was injured in this attack as he was driving by accident behind the attacked car. He happened to be the manager doctor of Al-Awda Hospital in northern Gaza. His situation is still very critical.

Within 15 minutes, fire service put on the fire and the ambulances rushed to hospital with the body of Hussam Abdeljawal and the injured Fadel Jouda, leaving two charred cars behind and a traumatized crowed of people, fearing that any one of them could be in that place.

Israel has risen the death toll in Gaza to 104, including at least 25 children, 10 women and 10 elderly people. More than 770 people were injured since Wednesday, mostly children and women.

Check this post of the names and ages of  those who fell victims in the past days of the ongoing Israeli attacks on Gaza since Wednesday. Because we’re not just numbers, I’m going to keep updating this post as long as I’m surviving. Israel is killing souls of innocent people in Gaza. Israel escalates its inhumanity and more victims are being murdered. Act now to stop this mass killing in Gaza. Israel gets its immunity from your silence.

    My Dear Ms. Shahd:
    You should not have to live like this. No one should have to live like this. The monsters at the controls of Israeli government are insane. Barbaric and outrageously stupid.
    Be strong my Sister. Be courageous and report to the world all you see and hear. And please for the love of God, keep your head down.
    peace and my undying respect,

    This is Jabari’s car. Do you also have a memorial post for Bin Laden? We are not missing any of them in US. This is not Israel vs. Palestine, it is muslims vs civilized ( or western) world. Israel is just in the front line of this struggle.
    You are the freeist Arab muslim women in the world because of Israel. You can drive a car and protest without fear of execution. You have probably used Israeli education system, Israel e electricity, humanitarian aid and hospitals.

    • nancy


      she is the most free muslim women because of israel? You have got to be kidding me. If you think life for palestinians is even close to free, then you must be living in a prison yourself. If you want to know what free muslim women looked like, you should research palestinian women prior to 1948, prior to israel. your ignorance is so deep i actually pitty you.

  10. @Shula the foreign imported eastern European squatter who is living on stolen land. Like all zionists when you open your mouth raw sewage comes out. Civilized western world ? Israhell ? Born out of les bribes and terrorism ! Inberd racism and narcissism go hand in hand. Hijacking Judaism to commit satanic acts. We all know you zioscum want to make this a religious war, a crusade but your attempts were demolished in Egypt when the Muslims gathered around the Coptic Christian church as a shield of protection,a week after mossad blew up a Coptic church in Egypt. And while the Egyptians rebelled to oust the zionist puppet Mubarak the Christians returned the gesture to their Muslim brothers & sisters. Now that puppet is gone as is Tunisia’s zionist puppet with more to follow. Your Fake state in on the verge of collapse and both the Christians & Muslims in the middle east are united in their support of their Palestinian brothers & sisters. Even in the west people are waking up to the zionist entity and your attempts to drive a wedge between Christanity & Islam which is bringing both faiths closer together. You better start packing your bags, your extended unwanted stay in the holy land is over, karma is coming to send you home !

    • Yes, there are many in the West who support a Palestinian state and the freeing of Gaza.
      Our governments do not do as we wish in this matter. H

    • God I wish what you say comes true, I really do. As an American I can tell you that since I have started speaking out about the Government in general. I have lost a lot. I am completely alienated from my family. I have only a hand full of friends that are not a part of the machine. There are people in the west that are waking up but I fear that it will be too little and too late. I pray for Gaza and the poor children that have suffered. I re-post and share all I can. I know in my heart that the opposition I face is of ignorance and evil so that is why I fight.

    Like a sick wild animal these zionists are striking out in a murderous deathrow-fashion

    Somebody arrest these war criminals or I will!

    Why does Hamas insist on targeting innocent Israel with its rockets? Stop the rockets and Israel will stop the attack.


    November 20, 2012 at 2:14 am

    • After 40+ years of fruitless negotiation, countless ceasefires that have achieved nothing, except to give you breathing space to build more settlements and annexe more Palestinian land, and destroy precious agricultural land, you ask why? They only voted Hamas in, because they had no other alternative. I don’t like Hamas and most Palestinians don’t I expect, but you give them nothing and keep them in a prison from where they cannot get out and be free to live their lives. We need a good israeli government that is brave enough to offer the Palestinians their own state and to free them. All you do is talk, year on year and you just carry on doing exactly as you please. The USA should not be supporting you. You are actually the cause of the rockets attacking your citizens. Please take a step back and look at the larger picture and the history behind this. keep safe. Best wishes, Hazel

  23. There are many of us ordinary people in the West, UK, who feel so helpless watching the relentless, year on year destruction of Gaza. Our governments do not reflect our wishes that Israel be made to stop trying to destroy its neighbour and to make sensible concessions and allow you your own state of Palestine. We don’t know why Israel is permitted to act like a crazy animal. We cry for you and fear for you and try in every way to influence our governments. Hoping you stay safe and a truce can be quickly arranged.
    Egypt may be able to help you more now. Stay strong. Hazel

  25. Dear Shahd.
    _______أحبك حبيبته
    I wish I will come see you tomorrow & give you hugs & kisses :) x0Xo! And maybe your sister won’t get mad & hit me over the head with the broom & call the police on me.
    || انا تعم يا أني الحب شاد, وَمَا رَمَيْتَ إِذْ رَمَيْتَ وَلَكِنَّ اللَّهَ رَمَى|
    المهمات الجهادية استهدف المجلس الإقليمي الصهيوني
    وتدك حصون المحتل بـ128 صاروخ وقذيفة من بينها 4 صواريخ
    ولنخوض المعركة في كل ميادين المواجهة ، فلنحارب في كل الساحات ، في الإعلام في الثقافة في العسكرية وفي السياسة ، وعندما تكون معركتنا شامله ومتسعة فان العدو سيرتبك والنصر سيكون حليفنا،ولعل كلام شهيدنا الامين العام لحركة الجهاد الاسلامي د. فتحي الشقاقي :” قليل من العناد والصبر سينفلق الصخر فالذي ينتظرنا ليس الموت إنما الحياة أو النصر “. ونسأل الله النصر بالحياة في الجنة .
