// Entry #6
It feels good to finally be able to say: Sami Kishawi, reporting live from the Gaza Strip.
Here are some photographs of my first moments in Palestine. The photos were taken in Rafah, Khan Younis, and Gaza City where I’m currently staying.
This used to be the headquarters for the Palestinian government groups organizing the entry and exit of Palestinians through the Rafah border crossing. It was one of the first targets destroyed during Israel’s bombing of the Gaza Strip in 2008-2009.
An old Israeli watchtower overlooks a military compound once run by the Israeli military. Everything behind it was carpet bombed in 2008-2009 to prevent any Palestinian forces from using it or taking cover within the structure.
