The Israeli assault in Gaza is taking a particularly cruel toll on children who have been caught in the crossfire.
Gaza's hospitals are said to be at a breaking point, with medical supplies running low and paramedics among the many attacked. Western media have not been allowed into Gaza so far to witness and report on the situation there.
Jenny Linnel is a British volunteer with the International Solidarity Movement (ISM), a Palestinian nonviolent resistance movement, and has been working in the Gaza Strip since August. Since the Israeli assault on Gaza began Dec. 27, Linnel has been working alongside other volunteers to "witness and document the devastation" in Gaza.
Since the ground invasion, Linnel and other ISM activists have been working alongside medical personnel in the territory. Here is her eyewitness account of conditions on the ground in Gaza.
What we are seeing now is like nothing that's ever been seen before in the Gaza Strip. The ground invasion will only worsen things.
TVNL Comment: Children have not been "caught in the crossfire", as the article says. Children have been placed in the target zone, directly, by Israel. Israel has no problem killing innocent people as they only value the lives of Jewish people. No other lives matter. They have proven this time and time again for Israel's entire 60 year history.
