Pregnant woman under rubble survived deadly Israeli attack on Gaza

Palestinian journalist Muhammad Daher did not live to see the birth of his son and will never see his one-year-old daughter grow up.

A financial editor for Al-Resaleh newspaper, the 27-year-old father and husband died after being injured during Israel’s brutal assault on the Shujaiya district of Gaza City this past summer.

His wife, Shaima, recalled that their three-story house collapsed on top of them when Israeli occupation forces attacked the area with heavy tank shelling on 20 July. “I was stuck under the house, under a pillar,” she told The Electronic Intifada. “I was pregnant at the time, and I really don’t know how I survived.”
