|“After waking up early Saturday to sirens and a barrage of hundreds of rockets, we learned about the unprecedented assault that Palestinian militants from Gaza carried out on Israeli towns,” Haggai Matar writes from Tel Aviv. “Contrary to what many Israelis are saying, while the army was clearly caught completely off guard, this was not a ‘unilateral’ or ‘unprovoked’ attack.”
This week, Matar along with myriad other writers filing from New York to Gaza have reported on the conflict and mass murders playing out across the region. Amid the fog of misinformation, The Nation strives to be a forum for accurate reporting and the voices of all who are suffering across the Middle East.
