Haitham: "It is quiet right now, we go used to the war, it has become part of our routine. At least now we can leave home during the daily cease fire, so I visit my grandparents everyday.

"In Sheikh Radwan neighborhood, people live a somewhat normal life….but after sunset no one walks around. We hear the bombing but it is far away. Everyday, after midnight the shelling starts, so one cannot sleep because the house shakes.

"I would like to thank the Arab world for their support. Apparently people in Yemen, Libya, Algeria, and the United Arab Emirates are able to call Gaza for free during the war in order to support us. To hear from people we do not even know is a very nice gesture. I hope that no one would experience what we have been through. I hope this war ends really soon so that we would have peace."
