Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded May 8th, 2024

Listen. Hear.

After rejecting a ceasefire agreement, Israel increased its bombing of the southern Gaza city of Rafah Monday night. In the small hours Tuesday, the eastern section of the border town was leafleted, then heavily bombed, while the crossing with Egypt, the only avenue of escape, was seized, with twenty people there reportedly being executed by the Israeli army. Whether or not this bodes the long-promised ground invasion of the city, where more than a million and a half Palestinian civilians have fled over the course of the now seven months-long genocide campaign, is difficult to determine; bombing civilians is one thing, but facing the waiting soldiers of Gaza’s resistance is quite another.

Laith Marouf is the Palestinian-Canadian founder of FreePalestine.Video. The long-time multimedia consultant and producer is currently chronicling the Palestine disaster from is base in Beirut. Free Palestine Video says it’s meant to fill a “large gap” and provide coverage, “…in the absence of media supporting the resistance forces in the English language due to the ban in the West.”

Laith Marouf and the next stage in an epochal struggle for the future.
