The words of Ismail al-Ghoul

Journalist Ismail al-Ghoul, based in northern Gaza, has shared the following on his X account:

“Let me tell you, my friend, that I no longer know the taste of sleep. The corpses of children, the remains, and images of blood almost never leave my eyes. The screams of mothers and the cries and anguish of men do not leave my ears.

I cannot get past the sound of children from beneath the rubble, unable to forget the voice of the little girl that echoes every moment and has become like a nightmare. It has become terrifying to stand before the scattered, stuck, stretched, and piled bodies, and even more terrifying when you pass by those who are fighting death under their homes, finding no way to escape and survive.

I am exhausted, my friend.”
