SOAS Palestine Society is delighted to host the book launch of Musheir El Farra’s “Gaza, When the Sky rained white fire”. On the 27th of December 2008 Israel launched an attack on the Gaza strip. As a result, more than 1400 Palestinians were killed and over 5,400 injured; thousands of houses were destroyed; and serious damages was done to hospitals, schools, and mosques.
El Farra’s book details the horrific stories of 17 Palestinian families who have lost their loved ones during Operation Cast Lead and with that loss their memories, hopes, and dreams were shattered. The foreword of the Book was written by Professor Ilan Pappe.
