Messages from Devastation

Since the beginning of this current, most vicious, Israeli war on the people of Gaza, family and friends, including members of our Insaniyyat community, have been anxiously trying to check on loved ones across Gaza. Below are translated transcripts of personal text messages, voice notes, and social media posts Gazan friends and loved ones have managed to send in response; intermittent messages composed in the midst of shelling and destruction, while overwhelmed by the news of constant deaths including of friends and relatives, without electricity, food, water, safe haven and hope. We humbly offer these voices from Gaza under siege that attest to Gazans’ immense suffering but also to their unbounded courage and will to survive.
