Wafa Elfaka planned a trip for her son to visit family in Gaza before starting a busy senior year in Tallahassee, but that trip came to a dead stop when her son was unable to enter Gaza from Egypt. She says Israel denied him entrance.
Elfaka hopes the fighting will eventually stop.
Wafa Elfaka said, "It's sickening and it's sad that we are in 2006 and yet we can't comprehend to when to stop shooting innocent women and children."
Elfaka and her son made it back to the states safely. She says members of her family who crossed into Egypt to visit her son are now stuck there because the border is closed.
