Ron Ben-Yishai: The Palestinians in refugee camps lived in houses all facing center courtyards. They were filled with the dead bodies of women and children. The young men were shot immediately, then the rest of the family could be dealt with at a more leisurely pace.
We looked down one alley, a very narrow alley, no wider than one and a half men. What we saw was that the alley was completely full. Bodies, bodies piled as high as a grown man’s chest. The dead bodies of young men. It was then that I fully understood the magnitude of the massacre.
