What are They Fighting for?

Hibba Msebeh, a 21-year-old student in Palestine, was killed in in the crossfire of a battle in Gaza recently, according to Times Online. She was coming home from a class at the university with one of her brothers, Sala’am, who is 17.

The night before her death, she had stayed up with her family condemning the battles between Palestinian factions in Gaza.

From the Times: “The family’s one remaining hope is that her death may not be in vain. Her senseless shooting has galvanised a population already bitter at the murderous infighting.”
