|Mohamed "By Bel Trew"|
The doctor told Trew that they had to take a skin graft to reconstruct the right side of his face and his left eye has shrapnel lodged in it. Mohamed is blind now.
If I am not mistaken this young boy needs to be transferred abroad to be treated.
Mohamed’s elder brother Ibrahim is in the same hospital too. The 14 years old got wounds to his head, neck, back, groin, leg and arms.
We do not know what happened to Mohamed’s parents. Their house was attacked without any prior warning.
Today the death toll in Gaza increased to 1422. More than 8000 Palestinians have been injured so far. At least 2000 are children who suffer from similar injuries like Mohamed and Ibrahim have got. I do not think those children and families will have warm feelings towards Israel and its army.
According to Chris Gunness , the official UNRWA spokesperson reported that 236,374 Palestinians have been displaced since the start of the Israeli military operation in Mid July.
They are displaced in 86 UNRWA shelters including schools which are bombed and shelled by Israel frequently. Five UNRWA officials were killed in the recent attack.
Gunness made headlines in the Arab media when he appeared crying over what is happening in Gaza on air on Al Jazeera TV channel.
