Letter from a former Gaza resident
To my dear caring Ministry of Foreign Affairs representative,
Thought it might be appropriate for you to resend with an addition to your update that includes "the humanitarian situation of former Gaza residents"
My husband and I lived in Gaza for 30 years and consider it as home as do all our five married children and those of all the families living here in the ein tzurim caravilla site and hope that someday there will be opportunities for us to return home and live peacefully with our neighbors as we did for most of first 25 years that e lived there.
. We are hearing endless sirens and explosions from every direction when present Gazans launch rockets on us as they try to murder us .We have no protection in caravillas (caravans with red tile roofs) . The only option is to try to run the distance to the concrete sewage pipe that may offer some possible protection for minor pieces of shrapnel ---but not for anything else.
My husband and I are elderly and cannot run so quickly as needed and are afraid of falling on way to seeking protection. My daughter has 5 young children and at night it is impossible for her to get into the sewage pipe in time before the rocket lands and explodes and usually the explosion finds her midway to pipe with little twin tots ---one in each hand as her husband worries getting the other three out of sheet rock caravan. My sons with seven and five young children as well have a hard time making it to the sewage pipe before the attempt to murder their families comes very near and explodes.By the way, a caravilla is a mobile home. After seven and a half years, Anita Tucker and her friends who were expelled from Gaza in 2005 still don't have real homes.
Those of us that do make it to the caravan have to stand for sometimes twenty minutes and more depending on amount of tie the barrage of rockets takes like sardines with sometimes as many as twenty people in these round based sewage pipes, with some standing like flies on a wall.
there are some young children and youth who have anxiety attacks with each large explosion that they hear and know was aimed at them as a Jew in the state of Israel. To seem them shaking and sweating and stiff as a board all at once when this happens is very disturbing and surely deserves a humanitarian solution
Perhaps the humanitarian solution for the citizens of the State of Israel is not to be too humanitarian to those who are making every effort to murder and lame us citizens .
would appreciate to hear what other efforts are being made to improve the humanitarian situation of the former Gaza residents who are Jewish citizens of Israel .
Thank you for your efforts,
