Bakr Boys 

On 16th July 2014, four boys who had been playing hide and seek among fishermen’s shacks on the wall were killed by the Israeli army. They were aged between 7 and 11; two were named Mohammad, one Zakaria and the youngest Ahed. All were members of the extended Bakr family.   

Thank you Aisha Mirza for this beautiful poem.
