Thank you for taking an interest in this very serious matter. Also, thanks for putting me on a pedestal.
A short history lesson
After WWII, United Nations told the Jews they would give them some land. The land given to the Jews is known as Israel, which was originally part of Palestine.
Of course the natives of Palestine were kind of pissed at that. Imagine someone walking into your house and claiming all of it but a closet. The closet is yours, but the rest of the house belongs to them now.
Israel has been illegally occupying more and more of Palestine. There is barely any Palestine left. The Israeli have stolen nearly all of it.
What is happening now
The Zionist Jews are in power in Israel, and they are determined to destroy Palestine.
The Israeli government has very systematically made their lives so unbearable that many commentators have described Gaza as an open-air prison.
You can see some of the bombings and hear the drones in this Buzzfeed post about a Palestine teenager who tweeted live once upon a time.
Israel has forced some 200,000 Palestinians to flew their homes. But since the Gaza Strip is so small, they have no place to go. Some of the places they have taken shelter, including schools and UN refugee shelters, have themselves been bombed by the Israelis.
“Israel is using flechette shells which contain 5000-8000 of these metal darts which explodes in the air and releases these projectiles and disperses them in a conical arch 300 meters long and about 90 meters wide with the soul purpose of targeting every civilian in the parameter and producing the largest number of casualties."

The death toll is high. Women and girls have been taken away from their families to be raped, experimented on, and/or murdered. Same with men and boys. The Israeli have even gone so far as to drop poisoned candy from the skies for children and animals to find and consume. They have even disguised bombs as toys for children to find. That’s sick.
Protests are taking place all over the globe today. Thousands of people are standing behind Palestine. And I am one of them.
