Today In Eastern Gaza..

I woke up in my relatively peaceful area of Gaza City...Started to gather news of what was being shelled or bombed early morning and during the night.
I turn on the TV and after seeing some of more frustrating news about political and diplomatic talks. I heard the news that 4 were killed by artillery in Shigayyah in eastern Gaza..I knew the family name, and I knew these are our neighbors at my parents house. I was getting more nervous as I dial the number of their relative who lives across the street from the house at the edge of Gaza. I tried to figure out what kind of noise did he have while speaking on the phone. As I asked...Who were they...? He said: "Yes, they were my relatives, three men (brothers) and a 3 year old child. It was a mistake". " ....I didn't know what to say, but Allah y3eenkom.." He said" it is Ok, what can we do..? But tell me if you need anything".
I couldn't help it...As soon as I hung up with him, I started crying. And I thought,...It is getting closer and closer. ..

the second thing I thought of was...What if ..? What if? My mother was there? What if a closer friend was also a target ..Or a mistake..?
