Khan Younis camp    Monday, June 18, 2001


Four of these pictures were taken on Saturday, June 16th at Khan younis refugee camp.

This camp, particualry, the western end is a dangrous area because settlements with many military bunkers surround it. It is one of the hottest spots throughout the occupied terretories.

Children, till this day, face many dangers. Many of their friends and relatives died. Some of them lost even fathers and brothers. Many others are living with injuries, half of them permenant.

These pictures were taken to provide a glimpse of what those young beautiful children are experiencing. They are fataly exposed to big size bullets such as 500mm, 800mm, etc...

Yesterday, in Khan younis Amal neighborhood, five children were rushed to hospital treated with various types of injuries. They were only playing soccer not far from a military bunker. They could only find space to play soccer in front of bunker or border of settlement. It is impossible to play any sport inside the refugee camp. Soldiers shot at them. One boy got shot where the bullet hit the side of his rear and stopped in his neck.
