Amal Ahmad Almadhoun is 22 years old, we grew up together in the same house. Her father Ahmad is my uncle, as of my father's brother. when I read the name they got it wrong in the news, but when I called Mohammad, my younger brother told me that it was her. I was speechless.
Amal was shot in the head Friday and this morning she passed away. She stopped by our old house to pick up few things on her way back to the relatively safer house. She was in the kitchen with my nephew Omar and my sister in law Amany...a sniper got to her and from what Omar said, her body dropped to the floor, hitting Omar who was next to her. She was in the ICU for two days, but nothing can save her.
As sad as this seems, and I am sad and hurt, when I spoke to my uncle and her brother Yosef they were at ease and said "Whole families lost their lives" "Many homes vanished" "We only give one person" Still I am mad. I did not know these familes, I do not care for building when always rebuild...that's what we do. But Amal is my cousin and she won't be back.
What did the Israeli solider think in the second prior to sniping her? Did he think he got an operative who was hiding in the kitchen?
