There has never been a better documented war than the one unfolding in Palestine at the moment. As Elshaik, Martinez and Shaer write in their contribution to Allegra’s Framing Gaza thread:

“Daily, images, videos and voice notes proliferate faster than they can be witnessed or heard or known. We have numbers, data visualizations, graphs and charts of death tolls and aid trucks and calorie counts. […] And of course, [we have] human rights violation reports, health analyses, compendiums of laws. We have transcripts of government officials calling for Gaza to be flattened, leveled, made uninhabitable.”

The facts of war can no longer be disputed. Instead, what is at stake is how violence and harm are framed: how certain kinds of violence are made visible, and others invisibilised, and how certain forms of suffering become illegitimate.
