8 Humbling Photos that Show the Resilience of the People of Gaza

Over the past weeks, Gaza has been under siege, while millions from all over the world watch the massacre as it happens with no way to help but pray.

Newborn babies, young girls and boys, women of different ages, men who defended their homes and families fell victim to the bombs and strikes of the apartheid army. The terrorism the people of Gaza has witnessed over the years did not wound the hearts and minds or the resilience of its nation.

Day by day, they set an inspiring example with a bittersweet taste of heroism.
