“This reminds me very much of what was going on, what we experienced during the three-week offensive attacks on Gaza in 2008-2009. It’s the same scenarios repeated, the same images, the same horrors, the same traumas in the Palestinian streets.” - Shahd Abusalama

“Since Wednesday, the Israeli attacks on Gaza have not stopped. At the moment, we have F16s shelling entire neighborhoods in Gaza, especially in the East and South. We have warships firing directly from the sea toward refugee camps that lie along the beach. And drones all the time.” - Rana Baker

“If these attacks continue … there is already a lack of medicines and medical supplies … And there has been repeated talk about the lack of more than 100 items of medical supplies in Gaza.” - Rami Almeghari

Heartfelt thanks for this reporting. This is the first time I have listened to Podcast.
I would like to know how much of this excellent picture of the present situation in Gaza gets to main media. Today, the radio program started in Gaza by the Young Journalist Club plans to go ahead with its weekly broadcast (in French), interviewing a French journalist currently working in Gaza. I am not sure this initiative has many listeners among important media sources. The program can be listened to here : www.yjctv.ps and listeners can phone in with questions or comments here : 00972 82 86 33 67.
