THE STORY:

Since airstrikes began on November 14, 2012, more than 100 Palestinians have been killed—including children and at least one pregnant woman, according to news reports. More than 1,000 people have been injured. A week later, on November 21, a ceasefire was declared, bringing the aerial assault to an end.

With nearly eight days of air strikes, the already-volatile environment has been made more uncertain across the region—from Gaza to Bethlehem to Jerusalem, and areas in between. Many Palestinians who struggle every day in impoverished conditions find themselves yet again without vital resources.

Buildings, schools and homes have been destroyed. Several Islamic Relief Palestine staff members who live in Gaza have reported damage to their own homes. Numerous Palestinians have been rendered homeless, and thousands of young children are living in a constant state of fear. According to Islamic Relief Palestine team members, mothers and fathers have told them of signs of stress on their children, including constant crying and bed-wetting.

 

Islamic Relief USA aims to provide emergency supplies to Palestinians who need it most by working with UNRWA, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency.
