It has been said that one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter. And so it goes on and on and on. To what end? Last night it came to Gaza once again. Mohamed el-Saife is DPI’s correspondent in Gaza City, or should we now say war correspondent. To photojournalism access is everything, and we just pray for his safety. To Palestinians this is a photo of a “Resistance Missile Over Gaza” after launch on the night of May 10, 2021. To others it is seen as a rocket attack from Hamas. The only thing that is sure is that innocent civilians including children will continue to die.
Today was a day of thanks and remembrance in Gaza City. The people turned out during the day to celebrate the brokered ceasefire accomplished by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi between Hamas and Israel. In the evening, children of Gaza City held a candle lighting ceremony on rubble in Gaza City. Photos by Mohamed el-Saife/DPI.
