Note: Due to the sheer amount of evocative and telling photography coming out of Palestine, we have transitioned our weekly photograph features into daily photograph features and will continue uploading images on a daily basis until further notice.

A boy writes the names of Palestinian children killed by Israel in the Gaza Strip since the beginning of the coastal territory’s invasion, during a demonstration in the Aida Refugee Camp near Bethlehem.
So far, over 250 children have been confirmed killed. The latest strikes that added to the death toll included a strike on a group of children as they celebrated Eid Al-Fitr with their families in a park in the Shati Refugee Camp as well as a ground shelling of a United Nations school that was sheltering families who had fled air strikes on their homes.
World-renowned journalist Jon Snow made a dramatically heartbreaking and unscripted appeal for the children of Gaza on live television days after he visited the territory to document the extent of Israel’s invasion. International attention is focusing more and more on the civilian toll of Israel’s brutal invasion.
