    Day 23: Israel strikes on another UN school serving as a refugee shelter & crowded market in Shejaiya during ceasefire as Gaza death toll passes 1,350 | July 30, 2014

    Faiza Al-Tanboura had not spoken for 21 days since a missile strike destroyed her home. In the early hours of the morning she found her voice: “The children. Don’t let them kill the children,” she shouted as she ran out into the playground of a UN school under Israeli tank fire.

    Three thousand people have squashed into Jabaliya Elementary Girls’ School since the Israeli military warned people to leave their homes and neighbourhoods or risk death under intense bombardment. Classroom Number 1, just inside the school’s entrance, had become home to about 40, mostly women and children.

    The first shell came just after the early morning call to prayer, when most of those taking shelter in a United Nations school in Jabaliya refugee camp were asleep, crammed into classrooms with what few possessions they had managed to snatch when they fled their homes. Minutes later, a second shell slammed through the roof of the two-storey school.

    At least 15 people, mostly children and women, died when the school in Jabaliya refugee camp was hit by five shells during a night of relentless bombardment across Gaza. More than 100 people were injured.

    Pierre Krähenbühl, commissioner-general of the UN agency for Palestinian refugees, UNRWA, said the shelling of the school was a “serious violation of international law by Israeli forces”.

    He said: “Last night, children were killed as they slept next to their parents on the floor of a classroom in a UN-designated shelter in Gaza. Children killed in their sleep; this is an affront to all of us, a source of universal shame. Today the world stands disgraced.”

    Christopher Gunness, the UNRWA’s spokesman, said “precise location of the school was communicated to Israeli army 17 times.” 

    The attack on the school was the sixth time that UNRWA premises have been hit since the Israeli assault on Gaza began more than three weeks ago, the UN said.

    In the evening, after Israel had declared a four hour humanitarian ceasefire, came another attack, on a busy market in Shejaiyah, between Gaza City and the Israeli border. At least 15 people were killed, including Rami Rayan, a Palestinian journalist wearing a press vest, and another 200 people wounded. 

    At least 110 people were killed across Gaza on Wednesday, July 30, bringing the total Palestinian death toll to more than 1,350.

"While most of us are busy buying new clothes, giving gifts to each other, and enjoying the warmth of a beautiful Eid morning; 

Our brothers and sisters suffer from the hands of the oppressors, they are gifted of continuous bombings & missiles attacks. They gather not for a beautiful warm Eid morning but for a gloomy janazah prayer for their loved ones. 

One by one they are being killed, like they are preys imprisoned in a cell and the predators are enjoying playing with their lives.

There is so much horror in Gaza right now, please as you make your dua today please let us repent to Allāh & ask for His Help for none can help us but Allāh. 

If you choose to stay neutral in this siege on Palestine when the truth is so evident, then know that you are by default on the side of the oppressor. Woe unto you and the likes of you! 

Indeed, Allāh will help those who help him. (Qur’ān 22:40)”

    My car broke down so I have been using public transportation. I went to the gym this evening. As I was walking to the bus, I realized how fortunate I was to be safely walking to the bus. The people of Gaza don’t have/feel the same safety as I have. May Allah SWT help the people of Gaza to endure this tough trial. May we see Palestine free. May we get to pray in the masjid al Aqsa. And I thank Allah SWT for allowing me to be safe. May Allah SWT keep us safe.
