Pictures from Rafah Crossing
Direct from Fida, who recently was able to make it into Gaza, shortly before the border was re-sealed.
Also, a brief update from Lebanon: the phone lines have been on and off lately, but we were able to get in touch with Yassine's family in Baalbeck, who were being shelled as we spoke to them. Things are very grim there, and the gas stations-whic his family rely on for income (re-selling fuel to Palestinian refugees in the camp, since palestinians are not allowed to own bussinesses or work in major professions). Yassine's oldest sister and her family are stuck in in the South in Tyre, adn with majore the roads destroyed, they are unable to evacuate.
