‘So They Know We Existed’: Palestinians Film War in Gaza

Palestinians in Gaza used their phones to film the 11-day war there in May 2021 between Israel and Hamas. The New York Times spoke to some of them and shared their footage as well as their stories. As one said: “I removed the password from my phone so that if we didn’t make it out, and we were killed, people would know what happened to us. So they know we existed.”
