Khudari commented on the scene by saying: “We found ourselves in the midst of continuous Israeli bombing, and sniper threats to leave, which besieged us throughout the period.”
She added: “We left our hearts in Gaza, and those who are still in the city are besieged and are urgently calling for ambulances, and asking for evacuation for some of the wounded that no one can reach. Humiliation and dehumanization have become our companions, as we have not only abandoned our homes, but also our memories and dreams.” Also, those were the most challenging moments of my life ever.”
