GAZA CITY — Having nowhere to hide even inside UN-run schools, the latest Israeli target, more than 215 children have been killed so far in Israel’s ongoing military offensive against the sealed off Gaza Strip.
But for many, that’s not the worst part of the nightmare.
Having lost a father, mother, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, friend or neighbor, about every child in the bombed-out costal enclave has been traumatized and will keep physical and mental scars for years.
IslamOnline.net has interviewed several children to talk about their feelings regarding Israeli onslaught.
I hate this war and I hear that Israel will come to our house soon.
I always get nightmares of rockets hitting my house. I dreamt of my father being killed by one of the rockets and my mother got her neck racked.
In the nightmare, I was searching for my brothers who were taken far away by the Israeli tanks.
I’m unhappy and I want to play again in my house. I hope no bad things happen.
I don’t like darkness. It’s when the sounds of bad things come out.
