1/15. #Rouzan al-Najjar.
2/15. @NeilCollier and I first met #Rouzan in May, during a reporting trip to Gaza. She was the first woman to volunteer as a medic at the weekly Friday protests.
3/15. Weeks later, while at my desk in NY, I received this message from my colleague in Gaza @abuheweila: #Rouzan was killed by Israeli gunfire.
4/15. @NeilCollier and I returned to #Gaza to investigate #Rouzan’s killing along with @halbfinger. We coordinated with @malachybrowne and @monaelnaggar in NY.
5/15. This is what it’s like to leave Israel and enter into Gaza.
6/15. At her home in Khuzaa, we met #Rouzan’s mom.
7/15. And we met her dad.
8/15. You can see Israeli soldiers from #Rouzan’s roof. That’s how close the border fence is to her house.
9/15. This is the path #Rouzan walked from her home to the protest field.
10/15. This is the mural painted now on her block.
11/15. #Rouzan is buried just around the corner.
12/15. Here is our full investigation into how #Rouzan was killed, edited by @johnmwoo.
13/15. During a third trip to #Gaza, @malachybrowne and I visited this @msf clinic, where thousands are being treated for gunshot wounds by Israeli fire.
14/15. A generation of Gazan youth, it seems, are on crutches.
15/15. Including Eyad al-Kahlout, who plays the flute with his crutch. He’s fighting a serious infection due to his gunshot wound.
