LISTEN: Rana Baker’s recordings of medic press conference, warship attacks on Gaza

Palestinians search through the debris of the destroyed home of the al-Dallu family following an Israeli air strike in Gaza City, 18 November. At least ten people were killed in this attack, including four children under five years old.

The Electronic Intifada blogger Rana Baker (@RanaGaza on Twitter) has produced several more audio recordings over the last twelve hours in Gaza.

Baker recorded a clip of today’s latest press conference hosted by the Ministry of Health in Gaza. The medic on the recording says there are more than 650 persons injured in the last five days, and that today, Israel committed “a massacre” when it bombed a house belonging to two families, destroying the house completely.

Four children under five years old were killed, and four women were killed. Thirty people were wounded.

The medic appeals to the international community to stop Israel’s attacks and occupation.

Rana also recorded two separate clips of attacks from Israel’s warships and, again, the continuous buzzing of surveillance drones over her house.
