I’ve been going in the last two days about the “Barquq Citadel” in the center of Khan Yunis, but nevertheless, here’s another close-up video courtesy of Hassan Eslaieh, a prominent journalist in the Gaza Strip and a resident of the city, who explains that in the run-up to Ramadan, every plaza he photographs was usually full of people preparing for Ramadan. And now everything is empty.

He points out that Barquq fortress is destroyed inside and out.

At 00:28 he points to a mound of dirt that was once the great mosque of Khan Yunis and now – there is no trace.
