LOOKING BACK AT THE ‘COUP’ IN GAZA | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

LOOKING BACK AT THE ‘COUP’ IN GAZA

My first experience of the conflict between Fatah and Hamas in Gaza
occurred the first day that I arrived in Gaza City by taxi from the Erez border crossing, I needed to use an ATM to get shekels, and the driver took me to a bank next to the central park. But people were running away from the area and at the bank the men waiting to use the ATM were flat against the wall. Bullets were flying a little farther down the street. I ran from the taxi to the ATM, where the men politely put me at the front of the line, as they always do for women,. I took the shekels, and ran back to the taxi, looking down the street to see where the bullets were coming from that I should dodge.
