Gaza: When the Sky Rained White Fire

by Musheir El-Farra - £8.99  Sheffield Palestine Solidarity Campaign (2012)

On 27 December 2008 Israel embarked upon a war, Operation Cast Lead, on the Gaza Strip. For over three weeks Israeli F16s, Apache helicopters, tanks and warships launched thousands of missiles, including white phosphorous and cluster bombs, wiping out entire residential areas.
More than 1,400 Palestinians were killed and over 5,400 injured; thousands of homes were destroyed; serious damage was done to hospitals, schools, nurseries and mosques.
This book details the horrific stories of just 17 Palestinian familes, out of hundreds of others - whose memories, hopes and dreams were shattered. This is their cry for justice. Sales of this book help fund children's projects in Gaza.

"This is a moving and careful account of the effects of the Israeli treatment of the people of Gaza. The stories are of families, in their own words, who have lost children, relatives, land and property, by deliberate Israeli attacks on civilians. It is a human story, told with deep integrity by a son of Gaza. It is a story that cries out for justice. All who think there is a case to defend Israeli actions should read it"
(Clare Short)
