Diary of a Gaza Resident

By Ben Cohen

Noah Nelson of ‘Youth Radio’ got in contact with me about my post on the Israeli invasion of Gaza in historical perspective, and sent me a link to a desperately sad audio recording from freelance journalist Safa Joudeh, who lives in Gaza City. Joudeh describes the rocket attacks on her city, the deaths of close friends and shares a dramatic audio clip of rocket attacks going off in her neighborhood.

It’s a horrific and compelling insight into the daily lives of Gazan residents who are suffering an unimaginable assault that seems to be getting worse by the day.
