A Palestinian teen's live tweeting as Israel bombards Gaza is a devastating, terrifying look into what people are experiencing on the ground.
Farah Baker, @Farah_Gazan, identifies herself as a 16-year-old who lives in the Gaza strip and is caught in the daily bomb assaults that have decimated neighborhoods and killed hundred of Palestinians.
Hello, I'm Farah Baker. I live in #Gaza and Hamas is NOT using me as a human shield— Guess what (@Farah_Gazan) July 27, 2014
While Farah's accounts can't be independently verified, she is using every Twitter means -- Vine and Keek videos, photos and tweets -- to show what's happening in her neighborhood. It's simply heartbreaking.
They are bombing heavily in my area. This is the worst night in this war. I just want you to know that I might martyr at any moment #Gaza— Guess what (@Farah_Gazan) July 28, 2014
Farah's pictures show pitch black skies over Gaza suddenly lit up by flares and explosions.
She, like many Palestinian and Israeli kids, is witnessing violence no one so young should ever face. This is the third war for Palestinian children in their lifetime and death spares no one.
