Under the rubble

A report by the respected human rights group Amnesty International conservatively estimates that over the last three-and-a-half years, Israeli armed forces have demolished more than 3,000 homes, leaving tens of thousands of men, women and children homeless or without a livelihood. Often the only sign is the rumbling of the Israeli army's U.S.-made Caterpillar bulldozers beginning to tear down the walls of their homes. Noha Maqadmeh, a mother of 10 and nine months pregnant, was killed in her bed by the collapsing walls of her home in central Gaza Strip when the Israeli army blew up an adjacent house.
