“Where Am I Supposed to Go?” Displaced Palestinian Girl Speaks Out After Israel Bombs Shelter in Rafah

HeadlineDec 29, 2023

One 13-year-old Palestinian girl named Nadin Abdullatif said Israel bombed the shelter in Rafah where she and her family were staying after their home in Gaza City was blown up and one of her brothers was killed.

Nadin Abdullatif: “Where am I supposed to go? Children were killed here. Twenty-six people were killed here. I’m terrified. I’m scared. And the thought of me being killed or my other brother being killed is just crossing my mind repeatedly. I already lost my older brother. I can’t lose my younger brother. I have no one left, no one to look up to. … You can clearly see that the houses are sticked together. So when they target one house, they’re targeting a whole block by this point. And it’s unfair. Why can’t we live normally? Why can’t we live a normal life? I mean, we’re children, and we’re people. Children were killed here. Imagine: children, babies.”
