Me: btw where are u now? at home? hmm hows Gaza now bro?
Him: Yes, working on a battery. Gaza is lacking everything. Electricity, fuel, food, etc
Me: I heard about the bombing recently. Is it true?
Him: Yes, of course. Bombing happens almost on daily basis
Me: Allahuakbar….was it near ur place?
Him: Yes. But don’t worry. We are ok. Atleast for now.
Me: Alhamdulillah… I thought d bombing is over
Him: Israel will never stop defending itself from the people whose land they have stolen. The bombing never ends.
Me: hmm how about d gate bro? i meant rafah?
Him: Closed as always. Border.
Me: still d same? so people cannot leave Gaza?
Him: It gets opened maybe three days every two weeks and not all the travelers get to travel. We don't
live like humans anymore.
Me: I am sad dat d world do not c this. :(
Him: Everyone is busy having fun.
Me: I meant…they may c but they do nothin
Him: Too bad for us

Him: Its ok bro. We are used to it.
Me: I hope jannah awaits all Gazan including u my brother!!

Him: Bro…living in Gaza is not living. It is surviving
Me: Bro…I am so sorry that I cud not do anything to help...
Him: Hey…its ok.. no prob.
