A young girl rescues her books from the rubble of mideast war
The girl is Palestinian, but she could have been Israeli, because, as the Kikuyu people in Kenya say, "When elephants fight, it is the grass that suffers."
The source for the image is a bit uncertain because it has been retweeted so often. This from the Reddit thread: "The oldest source for the image I can find it from a Twitter account based in Kuwait called (according to Google translate) "Code 00965," that tweeted it on July 27. The other sources are all from after that. It looks like some Indian people who work in the oil industry picked it up, then it got retweeted by Buzzfeed India, which is where it was more broadly circulated before people started picking it up in image searches and whatnot."
