Video shows Israeli shelling near ambulances that kills Gaza journalist 

Note: This video depicts graphic violence that some may find disturbing.

On Wednesday, Israeli forces shelled the Shujaiya neighborhood of eastern Gaza City, killing 17 Palestinians at a market where people had gone to shop during what they thought would be a four-hour “humanitarian truce.”

This video uploaded to YouTube shows the shelling. It is titled in Arabic “Shujaiya massacre and the targeting of a journalist and the injury of the Manara News Agency’s photographer.”

At the very beginning of the video a man can be seen wearing a flak jacket, helmet and carrying a camera, as he walks past an ambulance.

Another ambulance speeds into the frame and the man in the flak jacket can be glimpsed again.

Suddenly there is an explosion which sends up dust and smoke, followed by a second explosion. There are screams of horror, anguish and cries for help.

The videographer, whose name is not provided in the video or its description, is knocked to the ground but continues to film as the explosions continue.

The videographer gets up and films the scene around – injured people lying on the ground near the two ambulances, by walls and others hiding in an alley.

Smoke and fire can be seen in the background as shelling continues. The buzzing, likely of Israeli drones, can also be heard.

In the aftermath of the shelling, the video shows the body subsequently identified by media as that of the journalist Rami Rayan lying on the ground, wearing a flak jacket and helmet marked “TV.”

He appears to be the same person briefly glimpsed at the beginning of the video.

One of the distressed survivors, speaking to the camera, indicates to the “press sign” on Rayan’s flak jacket and says to the camera, “He was a journalist! Tell the world! Tell the United Nations! Tell the Arab collaborators!”

The video shows other distressed survivors tending to the injured and, at least in one case, collecting a body.

Since the current assault began on 7 July, Israel has killed at least seven Palestinian journalists and media workers and directly struck at least four media offices.

As of Thursday afternoon in Gaza, the death toll from the Israeli attack stood at 1,385 persons with more than 8,000 injured.

The world is letting fascist Israel continue its genocide of Palestinians so they’re not even hiding it any more. There’s no need to because instead of facing consequences for it they are rewarded with extra military aid from the US.

In Gaza, more than 215,000 people have been forced to flee their homes and have nowhere safe to shelter from the terrible violence. With bombing taking place all across Gaza, and the borders closed, there is simply nowhere for innocent civilians to go. This must end.

REBLOG THIS to join the call not just for a ceasefire, but a lasting ceasefire that addresses the root causes of the conflict and ends the blockade.

Just Now in Gaza, a baby born from dead mother who has been killed by Israeli army 

A LIFE FROM DEATH

Eight hospitals, nine medical clinics and 14 ambulances have been bombed since Israel launched an offensive in the densely populated, narrow 40-kilometer-long coastal strip Gaza. Home to 1.8 million Palestinians, the U.K.’s Prime Minister David Cameron has called Gaza “an open-air prison”. 

According to Gaza’s Ministry of Health, in the last 20 days four of the 1,000 killed were health professionals and 14 of the 6,000 injured were health professionals.

Israeli military warplanes and tanks have also hit residential neighborhoods, schools and shelters. The U.N. estimates that more than 74 percent of those killed are civilians

Under the threat of bombs, doctors like Bassel Abuward, Belal, Saeed Kanafany, and Mads Gilbert are performing miracles at Gaza’s largest hospital Al-Shifa.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has banned England cricketer Moeen Ali from wearing "Save Gaza" and "Free Palestine" wristbands.

Their reasoning? The slogans are of a “political” nature. Over 1,100 Palestinians have been killed in the past three weeks, including 200 children, but “Save Gaza” is political? 

Credit to England on this occasion who allowed him to wear the bands as they understood that his messages were humanitarian, before their decision was overruled by the ICC.

Moeen, who is Muslim and of Pakistani descent, helped raise funds for charities working with those affected by Israel’s three-week assault on Gaza. 

It gets worse. The whole England team are wearing the logo of the Help for Heroes charity on their shirt collars today to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the first world war.

"Just a while ago, the peaceful state of Israel killed 10 more terrorists in a playground, that happened to be children celebrating their first day of Eid in Gaza. In the meanwhile they also bombed Al-Shifa hospital fearing the doctors would attack them with knives and scissors. Afterall, self defence it is."

WHAT IF THIS HAPPEN AT YOUR HOUSE

Last night was the worst night by far.
Please read and help share this with the world. Words you wouldn’t usually read. 
By Khalid Elmezaini from Gaza.

"Last night was the worst night by far. Around 1 am the bombing was so intense that we decided to huddle together as a family in the living room away from the windows. Then a huge blast, so powerful it felt like the building was going to collapse. We hear screaming from the floor above us. We rush to the door, there is a woman carrying her 3 children running downstairs, "they hit our apartment" she screamed repeatedly. Was this a roof knock? Was her apartment really hit? Myself and 2 more ran upstairs to see, all we can see is smoke in her apartment, the bedrooms where her children sleep have smashed walls, a missile has hit her home. We couldn’t take chances. With the cloths on our backs we all ran downstairs to the ground floor. Do we leave? Where do we go? There is no place to go. And if we make a run for it they will target us, they always target moving groups. We decided that the 23 families should stay on the ground floor near the stairs. The children were crying, so were their mothers, it was chaotic. Then an even bigger bomb, louder than the first, the whole building shook, rubble flying onto our building, windows and glass smashing everywhere. We took our shahada, we were convinced this is our last night, that we wouldn’t make it. The bombing was intense, everywhere, north, south, east, west, it was random, every minute non-stop, we were just waiting our turn, like cattle for slaughter. 4 hours passed, non-stop shelling, then we can hear them coming, by their sound, the F16 fighter jets have arrived. By the time we made that realization, an explosion so powerful dropped us to the ground, rubble and smoke flew in, then quickly another closer one, then a third one a little further. All we could see are huge fire balls in the sky, light almost turning around corners. Moments later, a funny smell, we ran for any wet cloth, water on shirt and over the face will do. Time has passed, it was quiet for an hour. Was it over? The sun is now up, and we were happy to see it. We knew the zionist don’t hit as hard in day light as they do at night, where the cameras can’t capture the full scale of the destruction. We decided to go back to the lower level apartments, we were tired, we huddled and slept close to the door when deep down we knew that just like there is no where safe in Gaza, no place in our house is safer than any other.
Every house was hit, every building, every mosque, they have no targets, they do not know what they are doing.
This isn’t a fictional story, this is how we spent last night. And if the zionist think that this will scare us into submission, they need to think again, we only submit to GOD, we will never give up, we live and die with dignity and honour.”

▬▬▬▬ Famous parable Story Of Four Cow  ▬▬▬▬
Dear Brothers and Sisters, there?s a famous Story (parable) that I will go through, you may have herd it before, but there are some very important lessons we can learn from it. The story goes like this: ?There were four Cows. One of them was white and the other three were black. They used to live in a dangerous area surrounded by wolves. The way they protected themselves was that they were always together, they would stick together, watch out for each other, everyone was keeping an attentative eye, and they survived, even though the area was surrounded by wild beasts.But the three black cows had a meeting one day. And they said, ?This white cow is giving us away. When we try to hide at night, because we are black no one can see us, but the enemy is able to see the white cow, so why don?t we just let him go. The three of us will be together and let?s just let the white cow go away because he is just too much trouble.? So now from that day on, the three black cows would be on one side and the poor white cow is alone. They boycotted the white cow. Now the wolf is very intelligent. He was able to detect the disunity that was amongst these cows. So he made his move and he attacked the white cow, and while he was devouring his flesh, the three black cows were doing nothing. They were watching it, while their brother was being torn into pieces!But the following night, the wolf attacked the three black cows, why? Because now there were one cow short. So they were not as strong as they were the day before. Because they let down their brother white cow, now the wolf attacked them and was able to snatch away one of the black cows. And now we only have two left. So the following night, it was an even easier thing for the wolf because only two are left, so he ate one of them. And then on the final night there was only one cow left and the cow was trying frantically to run away from the wolf, but now the cow has no supporter and no helper. So the wolf is pursing it with confidence and he knows this cow will get tired and fall down, there?s nothing the cow could do. Nobody to help him, so the wolf is walking around very happily with confidence, and he pounced at the cow and grabbed him by the neck, and while he did that and the cow was pronouncing his last words, he made a very important statement, a statement that is a great lesson that we can learn from. This black cow said, (while he was dying), ?I was eaten, the day the white cow was eaten. I had signed on my execution form, the day I allowed the white cow to be eaten, that?s when I died. I didn?t die now, I didn?t die today?I died when I allowed the wolf to eat the white cow?Now brothers and sisters I?m sure some of you have already derived some lessons out of this story. I will now go through some of them If God ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬Lesson 1: The Ummah ( Brother hood )This story is a good representation of the situation us This is exactly what is happening. We are watching one Beverley nation fall one after another, and we are watching, sitting back, doing nothing. When Palestine was taken, we did nothing. And then one nation after another is falling into problems; you have Kashmir, you have Chechnya, the Muslims in the Philippines, and now we have Iraq, and the Brothers is doing nothing. The Brothers is watching, while Iraq is being devoured. It?s not going to end there, because it?s going to spill over to other countries like Syria and only Lesson 2: UnityThis shows us the consequences of having disunity.

Lesson 1: The Ummah ( Brother hood )

This story is a good representation of the situation us This is exactly what is happening. We are watching one Beverley nation fall one after another, and we are watching, sitting back, doing nothing. When Palestine was taken, we did nothing. And then one nation after another is falling into problems; you have Kashmir, you have Chechnya, the Muslims in the Philippines, and now we have Iraq, and the Brothers is doing nothing. The Brothers is watching, while Iraq is being devoured. It?s not going to end there, because it?s going to spill over to other countries like Syria and only 

Lesson 2: Unity

This shows us the consequences of having disunity. When these cows didn?t stick together, when the allowed the enemy to snatch one of them away, this is what happened to them, they were all defeated. Dear brothers and sisters, the Prop
het Muhammad (peace be upon him) had given an analogy of the Ummah (Brother hood),Muhammed  (may peace be upon him) as saying: ?The similitude of believers in regard to mutual love, affection, fellow-feeling is that of one body; when any limb of it aches, the whole body aches, because of sleeplessness and fever.?

The Prophet (peace be upon him) is saying, if your finger is injured or your foot is injured, any part of the body is injured and you feel that pain, you cannot sleep! And your body develops a fever because your body is trying to fight the bacteria inside the infection. It?s trying to fight the enemy so the whole body gets involved in that process. That is the description the Prophet (peace be upon him) gave of the Brothers.

Lesson 3: The consequences of betrayal. The consequences of forsaking a Believe.

Muhammed 
(may peace be upon him) said, “A Believer is a brother of another Believer, so he should not oppress him, nor should he hand him over to an oppressor. Whoever fulfilled the needs of his brother, God will fulfill his needs; whoever brought his (Believer) brother out of a discomfort, God will bring him out of the discomforts of the Day of Resurrection, and whoever screened a Believer, God  will screen him on the Day of Resurrection .———

The three cows in the story handed the white cow over to the enemy.
