The grisly reality of eight days of war has seared itself in Nader Basioni’s mind. Since an Israeli air strike slammed into a nearby field on November 15, his nightmares replay in graphic detail how a fleck of metal from that explosion tore through the family home and decapitated his nine-year-old brother, Fares, who was sleeping in the same room.
“His head was gone except for a piece of skin of his face,” Nader, 14, recalled on Friday at his home in Beit Hanoun in the Gaza Strip.
“I’m afraid to sleep because I see him in my dreams. It’s the same thing over and over - Fares is gone. He’s dead.”
