    The statement that “there’s no leadership” is patently ridiculous. Nothing this large and organized happens without leadership.

      I wish you the best and that they are ok. It is very easy to forget we are all humans with family that cares about us. All the best.

    I am so sad for the civilians 😢on both sides because it’s always the civilians who get used, abused and killed , and all they want to do is live their lives and bring their families up. 💔💔💔💔💔

  8. E P says:

    This is absolutely horrifying….anytime war happens, it is sad and a stain on humanity.
    Are we ever going to find peace in the world? 😢

  9. Peel's Myth. says:

    it makes me sad the way we treat one and other we could be doing so many great things if we all learned to live and let live in this amazing world ,God help us??

    Just came back from a few Palestinian news channels and people were celebrating there without realizing many of their families, friends, neighborhoods, and cities are going to be attacked soon too (I guess that’s the main reason why they took hostages there to prevent counter attacks but it’s inevitable). I know this war has been going on for a long time but I don’t see how this could end anytime soon.
