In Gaza City's close quarters, not every victim of recent Israeli air strikes is a Hamas supporter.
Amira Hass is the Haaretz correspondent for the Occupied Territories.
Born in Jerusalem in 1956, Hass joined Haaretz in 1989, and has been in her current position since 1993. As the correspondent for the territories, she spent three years living in Gaza, which served of the basis for her widely acclaimed book, "Drinking the Sea at Gaza." She has lived in the West Bank city of Ramallah since 1997.
Hass is also the author of two other books, both of which are compilations of her articles.
