Kashmiri or Palestinian girl? A victim of pellet munitions or bombing shrapnel?
In fact, this is 17-year-old Rawya abu Jom’a at a hospital in Gaza City during Israel’s Operation Ethnic Cleansing in summer 2014. She suffered severe shrapnel injury & disfigurement & emotional devastation when her family apartment was bombed, killing three of her cousins & her sister.
Israel was accused in that 7-week carpet bombing offensive of targeting children. Precisely what India does to children & youth in Kashmir. The numbers of those disabled by the occupation are in the thousands in both countries.
Long live Palestinian & Kashmiri Intifada. End the occupations. Self-determination for Palestine & Kashmir.
