Arab Israelis let loose of Gaza Strip recount journey punctuated by bombardments


JERUSALEM: When Fatima, an Arab Israeli married to a Palestinian from the Gaza Strip, fled Israel’s bombardment of the territory, she was terrified they might run out of gasoline.

“We feared that the gasoline wouldn’t be sufficient. The street was abandoned. All the way in which alongside, we noticed devastated homes,” the 30-year-old stated, talking below a pseudonym.
Fatima left on the “very perilous” journey from Al-Qarara in southern Gaza to the Rafah crossing with Egypt on Nov. 14 alongside her 18-month-old and four-year-old kids.
