Using the photos of smoke created by the devastating Israeli missile strikes, Palestinian artists Tawfik Gebreel, Bushra Shanan, and Belal Khaled, have sketched powerful images based on the silhouette of the smoke.

On Saturday July 26th, 2014 we took a trip to Downtown Santa Ana, California to take part in a live show by Chicano Batman. The rousing performance was part of 'Musica En Movimiento' art and music festival, which was headlined by Chicano Batman. 'Musica En Movimiento' was a family friendly event that took place to benefit El Centro Cultural de Mexico of Santa Ana.
The band played a majority of their hit songs during the nights set, such as, "La Tigresa", "Magma", "La Samoana" and the crowds favorite of the night, "Itotiani".
In support of the band I purchased a Chicano Batman emblem shirt (pictured above), and was gifted a sticker of their logo.
Other notable bands we watched perform that night at the art and music festival were, Viento Callejero, Cuicani and the rambunctious Cuahutemoc.
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — The Palestinian Ministry of Health on Tuesday afternoon said that more than 100 Palestinians had been killed in the Israeli bombardment on Tuesday morning alone, bringing the total past 1,200 as hundreds of thousands fled their homes across the Strip.
Earlier statements from the ministry had given the number of dead at around 57 for the morning, but after consultation with hospitals across the Strip the total was revised to more than 106 dead and hundreds more injured over the course of 14 hours. Since then, at least 16 more have died in Israeli attacks.
In the most recent attack, at least 14 Palestinians were killed and dozens were injured as Israeli forces shelled Jabaliya refugee camp in the northern Gaza Strip, a Ma’an reporter said.
The Ministry of Health also said that as of Monday night nearly 5,000 homes had been completely destroyed, while tens of thousands more had been partially destroyed.
The United Nations, meanwhile, estimated that more than 215,000 Gazans had fled their home, or more than 10 percent of the besieged coastal enclave’s total population.
