Nayfeh Abu Musa'ed was a Palestinian woman. 25 years old. Shot with two bullets to the shoulder and heart by Israeli occupation soldiers at a military post in Deer el Balah. The Israeli spokesman said that Nayfeh died of shock when the soldiers fired warning shots in the air when they noticed she was too close to the "security" (whose security?) border between Gaza and Israel. The spokesman didn't bother to explain how she had two bullets in her; after all those Palestinians are weird.
I don't know Nayfeh Abu Musa'ed. I will probably never know more about her (Did she have kids? Was she out for a walk or coming back from work? Didn't she know that borders kill? What color eyes did she have? Did she love the sea?)
The Palestinian media is lousy when it comes to personalizing the dead and injured. They become numbers. The excuse is that there are two many. Can't keep up. All I know is that it is not right. Even in this report, her story is buried in another story: of a more militaristic confrontation between Palestinian groups and Israeli soldiers. She wasn't involved in that. At least give her her own news story. She's news enough for me.
