Israel-Palestine: The girl who showed the world the suffering of Gaza's children

The video of 10-year-old Palestinian Nadine Abdullatif, tearful and devastated as she stands in front of the newly obliterated remains of her neighbour's home, has now been viewed more than 13 million times.

"You see all of this?" she asks, eyes red, gesturing at the rubble behind her. "What do you expect me to do? Fix it? I'm only 10."

Her voice breaks with emotion. "I just want to be a doctor or anything to help my people, but I can't. I'm just a kid."

The internet carried images of the recent spate of violence around the world over the past two weeks, as Israel once again dropped bombs on Gaza, a small stretch of land that is home to more than two million people - 40 percent of whom are under 14.

Yet despite Israel's best efforts and heavy-handed moderation - if not outright censorship - of pro-Palestinian posts by several social media platforms, it seems to have lost the battle for control of the narrative in large parts of the online space.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Anyone with a conscience and a heart, cannot help but be moved by these, and other images, coming out of Gaza right now.
