According to witness reports, the shelling started around 9pm Saturday and quickly grew in intensity. “The bombing was all around us - there was no light, no water, we didn't know what to do,” Ahmed, a Shujaiya resident testified. At 6am Sunday, Ahmed fled his home with his wife, sisters-in-law and their children.    

Another neighbourhood resident who returned to check on his house during the temporary ceasefire, Ibrahim Fayed al-Zayim, toldMa'an News Agency, "We woke up as the ceiling of the house fell on us. We fled on foot away from the sound of barbaric shelling not knowing where to go."

"The intensity and savageness of the shelling forced us to leave with whatever clothes we had on, with women wearing prayer clothes. Later good people gave us clothes to change," he added. 

Peter Beaumont, a journalist for the Guardian who is currently stationed in Gaza, confirmed in his article that, “At one stage, artillery and mortar rounds were hitting the outskirts of the city every five seconds.”

 “It is a massacre taking place in Shujaiya. It is a massacre with the full sense of the word, committed by Israel against innocent civilians, there are no armed men among us, the streets of Shujaiya are packed with dead bodies,” one resident, who managed to reach a hospital, told Al Jazeera
