People Of Gaza: Rockets And Revenge (Dispatch Eight)

People Of Gaza

This past Sunday, the Israeli military (IDF) carried out the single deadliest offensive in its nearly three-week assault on the people of Gaza, killing as many as 100 Palestinians in the neighborhood of Shejaiya. The operation — which many in the international community have called a massacre — has forced most of the remaining residents of Shejaiya to flee their homes and seek refuge in hospitals or U.N. affiliated schools because there is nowhere else for them to escape in the blockaded Gaza Strip.

VICE News was in Gaza to see the aftermath of the bombing of Shejaiya. They visited the central morgue in Gaza City, which holds the bodies of many who were killed. The organization then went to see the immediate aftermath of the shelling of yet another house in the city, and later saw another shelling site where residents were still trying to uncover family members in the rubble.
