Amongst death, there is life. With a drastically rising death toll, there is an unlikely survivor. God bless the Gaza doctors who performed an emergency cesarean to save this baby after her mother was killed.
A beautiful tragedy - her mother never saw her, never held her, not once.
I was so upset when I posted about this (both simultaneously heart-wrenching and heart-warming) story yesterday and the fact that it got no more than 2 paragraphs worth of mention. I’m glad Al Jazeera followed up on the story. Seriously, God bless the doctors. I’ll repeat what I said then: let it sink in for a moment, that because of Israel there are kids who will grow up with their mother having died before they were even born. Kids who will never be held by their mother, who’ve never heard their mothers voice because of Israeli missiles - who will carry the scars of being born into the world a survivor, among the rubble of their own house, with their mother already dead.
