Gaza August 19,2014.

"Extended cease-fire ends. Airstrikes resume. More than 30 Palestinians injured and 2  killed in Gaza."

Israel’s Operation Protective Edge

  • 2,019 Palestinians killed [80% civilians] , including 542 children and 251 women from Israeli bombardment
  • 64 Israeli Soldiers killed in combat and 3 civilians
  • 10,223 Palestinians wounded, including 3,486 children and 1,970 women
  •  UNRWA has exhausted its capacity to absorb displaced persons, and overcrowding in shelters risks the outbreak of epidemics.
  • 122 Palestinian families have lost 3 or more members of their family.
  • UNICEF estimates about 373,000 Palestinian children have had some kind of direct traumatic experience and require immediate psycho-social support.
  • 1.5 million people in Gaza have limited or no access to water supplies. 26 health facilities have been damaged.
  • More than 485,000 internally displaced are in need of emergency food assistance.
  • Shelling and bombing have damaged 142 schools — 89 of them run by the United Nations — , and multiple Israeli strikes on Gaza’s only power plant and other infrastructure have left it beyond repair.The cost of reconstruction will run to “hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars,” - Pernille Ironside, the head of the Unicef office in Gaza

Trevor Paglen - They Watch the Moon (2010)

"This photograph depicts a classified ‘listening station’ deep in the forests of West Virginia.

The station is located at the center of the National Radio Quiet Zone, a region of approximately 34,000 square kilometers in West Virginia and parts of Maryland.

Within the Quiet Zone, radio transmissions are severely restricted: omnidirectional and high-powered transmissions (such as wireless internet devices and FM radio stations) are not permitted.

The listening station, which forms part of the global ECHELON system, was designed in part to take advantage of a phenomenon called moonbounce.

Moonbounce involves capturing communications and telemetry signals from around the world as they escape into space, hit the moon, and are reflected back towards Earth.

The photograph is a long exposure under the full moon light.”
