16-year-old Farah Baker, who goes under the name Farah Gazan on Twitter, is amassing thousands of followers and re-tweets on Twitter after sharing a night of her private terror from her bedroom as rockets fell through Gaza overnight.

“I might die tonight,” she wrote.

The teenager tweets furiously between attacks; posting video footage and sound grabs of bombs and missiles as they fly through the air and hit unsuspecting targets.

Yet some have debated the validity of Baker’s tweets, with some arguing the teenager is in it for the extra followers. Others though, have begged her to keep tweeting.

“Lets hope this keeps up, that she survives tonight,” wrote Christina Greig.

But Baker has been blogging about her life in Gaza since 2012. In her last post, Baker wrote, “I want to speak about what is happening these days in Gaza. We cannot leave our houses because it’s dangerous outside.”

Bloodshed in and around Gaza has surged today with strikes killing 13 Palestinians, a day after five Israeli soldiers died, shattering hopes for an end to three weeks of violence.
