Dogs of war: Animals get PTSD too... and according to a Haaretz article:
Could your pets be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder? Yes, according to some animal behavioral experts, who have diagnosed and treated the problem in dogs.
It’s a lazy afternoon. It’s hot and the family’s hanging out. Suddenly a rocket siren shatters the peace. Everybody, including the family’s five dogs, heads promptly but calmly to the reinforced “safe room.” Meanwhile, in Tel Aviv, as the siren wails, D.’s dog pees on the floor in terror. Jasmine’s three cats twitch an ear, at most, but otherwise – nada.... but Haaretz is concerned about 'the population of Gaza' too. There's even one whole little paragraph about them:
1:02 P.M. Nearly one quarter of the population of Gaza has been displaced over the three weeks of Israel's operation: Some 225,178 people have sought refuge in 86 UNWRA schools across the Strip. The head of UNWRA told Haaretz that the organization has demanded a number of times in recent days that Israel, as an occupying force, deliver the necessary humanitarian aid to the people of Gaza.
