Israel/Gaza: two pictures that tell a different story

Gazans being treated in Ashkelon

(YNET) Michael Bloomberg, NYC mayor, visited the Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon and went down to the children's ward that has been relocated to the bomb shelter.
The mayor met with two Palestinian women from Gaza who were staying at the hospital. One of the women, from Gaza's Rimal neighborhood, arrived with her grandson that was born some three weeks ago and suffered medical problems. The boy's mother was left behind in Gaza and could not leave.
The other Palestinian woman Bloomberg met with was pregnant and waiting to give birth.
