Sameh Habeeb: Live from Gaza


AUTHOR:  Kourosh ZIABARI


Palestinian journalists in Gaza who covered the merciless Israeli offensive became disturbingly aware that the Zionists were targeting the independent media in the Gaza Strip.

Sameh Habeeb, 23, is one such journalist, who reported from Gaza.

The Tehran Times talked to him during Israel’s war on Gaza.

“On the 23rd day of the conflict and in spite of the ceasefire, an Israeli phosphorous bomb hit the eastern part of Gaza City and Israeli F16s broke into the Gaza Strip airspace causing a case of fear and panic for civilians”, reported Sameh Habeeb from the Strip.

“17 other members of Samouni family found dead under the rubble of their house in Zeitoun, Some of them were killed by shells and some others executed by live bullets”, he stated.

Sameh Habeeb, whose house had been attacked by the Israeli artillery in the 18th day of conflict, said: “Hospitals, water pipes, telephone lines, electricity posts and even universities, schools, mosques and public places are thoroughly devastated and Israel only allows 15 trucks of humanitarian aids into the strip while we need at least 300 trucks every day.”

“Specifically, We are very happy about the helps of Iranian nation alongside the Iranian president and much thankful of them, though we request them to do more for settling reconciliation between Hamas and Fatah, which would inarguably result to the stabilizing of internal situations in Palestine,” Habeeb added.

“Thousands of people appeared on the Gaza streets, everybody is trying to explore what has happened to his relatives, houses and areas. I have documented a massive devastation throughout east, north and west of Gaza Strip. The devastations stormed everything needed for normal life. Houses, schools, hospitals, clinics, police stations, charities, universities and streets totally and partially destroyed.” he mourned.

Habeeb complained: “Most of the world media are controlled by Israeli lobby and they don't allow the reality to be publicized. They chase the independent journalists and correspondents away from the Gaza Strip and won't allow the mass media to broadcast the tragedy of Gaza straightforwardly.”
