Rafah, Gaza Strip – Under continued Israeli air strikes and artillery fire, Issa Akel has no other choice: The 50-year-old bulldozer driver must stop unearthing the dead bodies buried beneath the rubble in this southern Gaza town and seek safety for himself.
In Hay al-Junina, east of Rafah, Akel went on a mission to rescue the dead, but he soon realised that his life was in danger. On Saturday, the town’s roads were littered with dead bodies, left bleeding for hours without any ambulance crew arriving to rescue them.
A three-day humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza collapsed only hours after it began amid a deadly new wave of violence and the apparent capture by Hamas of an Israeli soldier. Intensive shelling killed dozens of people in southern Gaza hours into the short-lived truce on Friday, with Hamas accusing Israel of breaking the ceasefire and Israel saying it was responding to rocket fire. Al Jazeera’s Charles Stratford reports from Gaza.
Earlier today, Ghazi Hamad, a senior Hamas leader told Al Jazeera it would not accept continued Israeli operations during the humanitarian truce, which has since been officially ended by the Israeli army.Hamad said: “Israelis have violated the ceasefire but there was no reaction from Hamas. If Israel continues to violate the ceasefire I don’t think anyone can control the Palestinian organisations.
