Gaza Post – Gaza
Palestinian brother and sister were wounded by Israeli gunfire during their participation in the Great March of Return protests that have started since almost a year and a month at the eastern borders of the besieged Gaza Strip.
Suhaib Qudaih, 33 years old, is a father of six children. His leg was amputated after he was shot in the leg by the Israeli snipers' gunfire.
"The protests were peaceful. I didn't expect to get injured. I came close to the fence to rescue a wounded girl during the protests but Israeli soldiers opened fire towards me, targeting my leg." Suhaib told Gaza Post.
Nazeeha is 38-year-old unmarried lady. She lives with her "only" brother Suhaib. She used to help him harvest several crops in different seasons to make living. Farming is the only source of living for them.
Nazeeha also lost her leg during her participation in these peaceful demonstrations. And actually, these rallies are just peaceful from our side, the Palestinian side.
"I was distributing water bottles among protesters. Then I was filling them again when they are empty. I witnessed the falling of martyrs and injury of protesters. Situations were difficult." said the lady.
Despite the injury of Suhaib and his sister, they went back to work on wheat harvest in their land in Abasan village in the city of Khan Younis southern the blockaded strip.
They faced all these difficulties and decided to live and earn living. Those are steadfast heroes.
