Gaza Under Illegal Attack AgainKen O'Keefe Salem-News.com
Israel continually, immorally and illegally, attacks and kills the oppressed Palestinians of Gaza. They are firing again right now.
(GAZA STRIP) - Our correspondent Ken O'Keefe is has been in Gaza for several weeks after successfully making entry following the bizarre high seas event involving the Greek freighter Strofades IV, that took place during an attempt to move an overland relief convoy of vehicles traveling as part of 'The Road to Hope Convoy'.
Ken's most recent video report from Gaza was filed last night; (Almost 100 Gaza Laborers Shot this Year for Collecting Rocks - Ken O'Keefe and Noor Ahmed Harazeen Salem-News.com).
It features a candid look at the extremely difficult life for residents of Gaza who are living just slightly better than Jews did during the Holocaust. In this case we learn how one of the few remaining jobs in Gaza is collecting rocks for the construction of roads. Israel recently deemed the rock collecting 'illegal' and has shot 97 Gazans for doing it since May. 22 have been shot in the last 23 days.
23 days ago Ken and a group of activists were shot at by Israeli soldiers in guard towers that line the Gaza strip, interspersed between the massive sections of wall that grasp Gaza with a terrible feeling of oppression and isolation.
Ken dispatched these words:
