Gaza Strip encircled by Wall

The Israeli occupation celebrates the completion of the construction of the wall surrounding Gaza, and the transformation of the besieged Gaza for 16 years into a prison where more than two million Palestinians live.

This is how the Israeli occupation transformed the besieged Gaza after it finished building the wall today.
Gaza has become the largest prison in the world by air, sea and land.

The Israeli occupation has finished encircling Gaza Strip with a fence hundreds of meters above the ground, and extending to tens of meters underground, in addition to many very precise monitoring devices that monitor the movement of people step by step.

Look closely at the picture, this is happening in the twenty-first century, "Israel", under the full watch and hearing of the whole world, puts more than two million people inside an iron cage in every sense of the word, and the world and the international community are still calling what is happening in Palestine a "conflict".

Gaza - The Palestinian hunters become the hunted

It’s Gaza’s bird-catching season, when some Gaza residents earn a modest amount of money to help support their families by trapping exotic migratory birds along the border with Is-r.8el.

But the problem, and a very deadly problem, is that the hunters have become the hunted. Israeli snipers target Gaza residents as they go about their work.

The method Gazans use is a classic bird trapper’s ruse. A string tied to the legs of a captured bird acts as bait for others flying overhead. When they land on the ground, thinking there are worms to be had, a net is flipped over the birds. Simple but effective.

But Israe8eli snipers lie in wait, overlooking the land where the birds are aplenty—in the heavily militarised and blockaded Gaza Strip along the border.

Gaza has two bird trapping seasons—in the fall when several species of birds migrate from freezing #Europe to the #MiddleEast, and the second in May, during the breeding season of local #birds.

Bird hunting is an old recreational practice for many but due to the difficult economic situation in Gaza, it helps provide a modest source of income for those who are unemployed.

But it has become a dangerous activity. Anyone moving around in the be.s-1e-ged area can become a target of Israeli snipers.

“Thirteen Gazans have been murdered by Israeli snipers while hunting birds in different areas along the borders since the second Intifada in 2000,” says Maher al-Tabbaa, a Gazan economic expert.

In 2021, Mohamed Ammar, a Palestinian man, was shot dead while trying to capture goldfinches in the border area. He was said to be supporting a family of 10 and was the main breadwinner. He was shot in the back of the head by an Israeli soldier. An inhumane crime.

While untangling net traps for migratory birds, Palestinian bird hunters know that an Israeli sniper can target them any time.

Gaza - 15 year siege and ongoing

15 years ago today, Israel began its siege on Gaza. Since then, over 2 million Palestinians have been trapped there as Israel refuses to let them leave while restricting their access to electricity, poisoning their water, and most horrifyingly, bombing children's schools and hospitals alike, killing thousands of Palestinians in Gaza since Israel began its siege in 2007.

Gaza has been unlivable for years now, and each day that Israel's siege continues means more suffering for the people who live there. The US must insist that Israel end its siege immediately and stop funding Israeli war crimes against people in Gaza—Palestinian lives depend on it.
