Desperate Pleas from Rubble: As Gaza Faces Airstrikes, A Woman Calls Out from Collapsed Home

A woman calls for help from under the rubble in Gaza

One particular video that has gripped netizens captures a desperate plea from a woman trapped beneath the ruins of her demolished home in Gaza. Rescuers can be seen, and voices heard, trying to calm her while instructing her to place her hand under a flashlight to allow them visibility. “Keep your hand on the flashlight,” an unidentified man is heard advising, emphasizing the urgency of the situation. To lift her spirits, another rescuer assures her, “Don’t worry, stay strong… our people are working.”

Although the exact location and timing of the video’s capture remain uncertain, several neighborhoods in the Gaza Strip, including Al-Rimal and Jabalia refugee camp, have witnessed severe bombings in recent days.

According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, nearly half of the fatalities in the Gaza Strip are women and children. An official statement released on the ministry’s Telegram channel reported the distressing numbers: 447 children and 248 women, bringing the total Palestinian death toll to 1,448 since the onset of hostilities. This comprises 1,417 individuals in the Gaza Strip and 31 in the West Bank.
