My own private Gaza

September 2012

Qassam rockets, Hamas, Gilad Shalit, besieged, Cast Lead – all of that is what goes through our minds when we think of Gaza.
But what about the people who live there? How do the people who live in Deir al-Balah, or in the refugee camps, feel about the economic situation in Gaza? About security? The political situation? What does an average morning in the Gaza Strip look like?
Khaled ‘Azayzeh, a B’Tselem field researcher in the Gaza Strip, shows us his personal Gaza. Episode one.


The figures do not include fatalities in the Gaza Strip and Israel during Operation Protective Edge (8 July 2014 through 26 August 2014). These figures will be added once the relevant investigations are complete.
