1/1/09 (p): Al-shifa hospital, after Israeli airstrike in Gaza
“Two consecutive shells just landed in the busy car park 15 meters from the entrance to the emergency room of the Al Awda hospital. The entrance of the emergency room was damaged. At the time of the shelling Ambulances were bringing in the wounded that keep pouring in. Medical teams and facilities are being targeted. Nowhere is safe.”
‘“They shot a young girl in the face and abdomen. She is now being operated on. The father of the family was shot in the leg and fell to the ground,”
“The mother was screaming that one of her daughters was still outside, behind a bush, too scared to move. Mohammed, a medic I have been working with, ran outside and carried her to the hospital,”
"We had been in our houses for days worried about the airstrikes when the soldiers came early on the morning of Sunday 4th January,'‘
"There was shooting outside and we were all afraid so we all hid in this one room.''
"We were terrified as shells hit the roof in other parts of the house but we thought we were lucky because they did not hit our room.’’
"Eventually we heard soldiers coming in and banging on the door at around 6.30am.’’
"Atiyeh went to the door with his hands raised holding his ID but they shot him in the doorway and he fell forward.''
"I shouted 'children, children' in Hebrew but they started shooting,'‘
"Ahmed was hit two times. His sister Amal was hit in the head and she is still in hospital.''
"I carried him in my arms still bleeding and we had to step over the body of his father,''
"We had to leave Atiyeh but I hoped to save Ahmed.’’
"He died as I carried him.''
Israeli soldiers occupied a four-storey house next door, leaving a collection of racist graffiti.
Most was written in Hebrew but Israeli soldiers had also marked the walls in English, with messages such as:
"ARabs need 2 die'‘
"Arabs are pieces of shit''
"1 is DOWN 999,999 TO GO''.
The house was the only large property allowed to stand All the other buildings in Zeitounwere flattened including homes, the mosque and a chicken farm.
Survivors claim Israeli forces collected about 110 members of the Samouni family inside and they then shelled it. At least 30 bodies were recovered.

Meg Audette, World Vision Jerusalem's Design: ‘’ I was outdoors in a nice outdoor restaurant in Gaza City. Children were playing, parents were watching over them and things seemed normal when suddenly, out of nowhere there was a deafening noise. Suddenly, the children were screaming and every part of me was clenched into tightened nerves. Logically I knew it was the sonic boom, but I couldn't control the effects it had on my body ‘’
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said that, "thousands of residents in southern Israel live in fear and discomfort, so I gave instructions that nobody will sleep at night in the meantime in Gaza ."

Hatemhttp://english.aljazeera.net/news/middleeast/2009/01/200911591418168902.htmlShurrab – writing for the Lancet:
‘At the school I met 11-year-old Yasmin. As I was talking to her she hit another child and started a fight with a boy the same age as she was. I was shocked and saddened to see such young children behaving like this. When I spoke to her father he explained that three weeks ago she was calm and innocent, but is now aggressive and angry.’
‘Momen, the three-year-old son of one of my colleagues has also started to act in violent ways. For three weeks the family would hear explosions day and night and now Momen’s personality has completely changed. He has destroyed his toys, constantly shouts and screams, and refuses to leave his mother’s side’
