Mariam, a nine year old child of Alla-al-Masri and Hanan, was their only daughter. They loved her and were always advising her to stay in front of them in the bad times of Gaza. “Mariam was the most important blessing of Allah, after making so many duas for her. Our love for her was precious and priceless. We don’t know what she has done for which she is punished so brutally in front of our eyes. And we don’t know whether she will wake up again to see another morning.” Masri said in pain, while seeing his beautiful daughter lying in blood.
“Our nine year old girl was playing in the garden, when this crisis affected us. Our house was targeted and bombarded by Israelis. Within a second, our life turned to hell. I saw my little daughter drenched with blood. Her head was completely injured and it was terrible looking my daughter in pain.” said Mr. Masri.
Mariam is not the only child; she is one among many of the Gaza’s children who have been victims of the ravenous Israelis. According to medical authorities of Palestine, more than 1200 people are injured from bombardment and 200 people have been killed. Among these people, 70 % are young children and females.
Dr Nabeel Sharqawi of Al-Shifa Hospital had been treating many of the child patients. He said “It is very difficult to do treatment of child patients. We are no doubt medics, but on the other hand we are also humans who have heart and feelings. It is very distressful to see children in severe pain. Mariam’s brain was badly damaged. We tried our best to save her precious life so that she can see more colors of life. But, unfortunately, we will have to face such cases on daily basis under such crisis.”
Like Mariam’s incident many young kids parents are facing the same situation. Parents report renewed signs of anxiety and stress among the young children. “Now trauma is living in us again. Even closing the door of the fridge can scare my daughters” Umm Fadi, who lives in Tal al-Sultan, told Al Jazeera (Arab Newspaper).
Gaza crisis has badly influenced the lives of people. Israelis attacks and bombardments have destroyed thousands of lives and belongings of people in just a few seconds. The people are in so severe a trauma that no one can imagine. Gaza is a very small region where people used to live happily, but now the place is full of dead humans drenched in blood. Its people don’t know the reason for which they are punished so bitterly by Israelis.
May Allah give relieve to them from such severe pain. Every one of us, although not being the part of Gaza, must pray for them. Stern action should be taken by United Nation and other international authorities against this act of Israel. People should be compensated for their loss. What is their fault? Only that they are Muslims. Think about their pain, for this you don’t need to be a Muslim; you just need to be a human.
