100 days. 

Over three months of genocide, unrelenting bombardment, targeted attacks and a military onslaught, 1% of Gaza’s 2.3 million population has been martyred. Since October 7th, this escalated genocide - broadcast live - has laid bare the assault on Palestinian culture, heritage, narrative and livelihood that has been ongoing for more than 75 years for the world to witness. 

In Gaza, 9 out of 10 people endure 24 hours without food. The genocide has displaced 1.9 million people due to the destruction of various institutions, including health facilities, schools, heritage sites, mosques and governmental administrative buildings. Journalists and media workers have been specifically targeted, with a minimum of 82 killed, 16 injured, three missing, and 25 arrested. 

Currently, one Gazan child is killed every 10 minutes…and these numbers will have risen by the time you see this post.
