People Burned Alive, Child Decapitated: Report from Rafah on Israeli Strike That Killed 45 in Camp

Update after an Israeli attack on refugee tent camps in what had previously been declared a “safe zone” killed at least 45 people, including women and children. “Basically, the situation is totally catastrophic,” reports Palestinian journalist Shrouq Aila, from Rafah. She explains the bombs set tents, made largely of nylon, on fire, igniting a deadly blaze, and that Israel’s relentless assault has made three hospitals in the city inoperable. 

Shrouq Aila has been displaced since the start of the war from Jabaliya, where she had been studying English at the now-destroyed Islamic University of Gaza.
