From Gaza strip, Rasha N Abushaban reports how the Israel- Palestine conflict is taking a toll on the lives of the children of Gaza. She writes: “there are thousands of heartbreaking stories can be told about children’s experiences. Some have witnessed the death of their parents or families, sometimes even being forced to stay for days with dead due to non-stop fighting. Other children have been used as human shields on tanks to invade villages. Such stories are common in wartime but for these children the misery continues all the time”.
Gaza is perhaps one of the most dangerous places in the earth to live. Lives here are torn apart in politics, conflict and blockade. It is rare that we hear positive news from Gaza. Even from this hopeless situation, our regular contributor Rasha N. AbuShaaban sent us an amazingly uplifting story. A story about inspiration, hope and happiness in Gaza. A story of defying odds, a story of bravery and love.
