Reporting from Gaza: Ceasefire in Beit Hanoun & Shejaiya

Dear friends,
a brief ceasefire has taken place. During this time, Palestinian families attempted to return to their homes, only to discover their homes no longer existed. 

Many Gazan families spent the ceasefire trying to retrieve what belongings they could and sadly digging the bodies of their family members out of the rubble. So far more than 150  bodies have removed from the rubble of the cities that Israel destroyed.  The number is expected to continue to grow.

Israel has now massacred more than 1050 people in its bloody and brutal assault on Gaza.  Please join the rallies and actions in your cities to add your voice in protest against their actions. Please get involved in the Palestinian Boycott Divestment and Sanctions campaign and discuss with your church, place of worship, community group and union about joining the BDS campaign and passing motions condemning Israel's war crimes in Gaza.
