100,000 Palestinians Still Homeless after Israeli War on Gaza in Summer 2014

SHAFAQNA – Liala Kloob, her unemployed husband and their six children sleep on cots in the Abu Assi School in a Gaza Strip refugee camp, USA Today reported.

A year ago, her husband worked as a tailor and they owned a house. But Israeli airstrikes destroyed their home and her husband’s storefront during the 51-day war on Gaza strip last summer.

“You cannot imagine life in a school with about a 100 other families,” said Kloob, who depends on United Nations aid to survive. “The only available solution for my family is staying at the school. We have to stand in a line and wait our turn to get food, water or even to go to the bathroom.”

“No one pays any attention to us,” said Alaa Abu-Lahyah, who lost his home and seven relatives, including four young children, in the Tel Aviv’s summer war on Gaza. “We just keep hearing repeatedly about reconstruction funds, but we don’t notice any practical and realistic steps toward reconstruction.”

More than 2,150 Palestinians, including around 570 children, were killed since Israel launched its onslaught on Gaza on July 8. Some 11,100 others were also wounded in the 50-day war on the Gazans.

The United Nations said over 80 percent of the killed Palestinians have been civilians.
