Screams, a rushed evacuation, then the bombs came
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) – The screams of my colleagues woke me up and the beating of my heart choked the rush of my mind. What happened? Was anyone injured in the streets of Gaza City, or worse?
It was 1:55 p.m. on Saturday. I was napping on the top floor of the two-story penthouse that served as the offices of the Associated Press in Gaza City since 2006. It wasn’t unusual the past few days; since the fighting started earlier this month, I had slept in our information office until early afternoon, then worked all night.
