While news passed away

Its more then a year ago since Israel attacked Gaza. I have been there just after the war and met the Abed Raboo family, they lost everything. Now I am back more then a year later, I am very happy to see them and they are happy to see me. But their situation is the same; they still live next to the rubble of their former house.

There is no aid and Israel doesn't allow building materials to enter Gaza. The water is being cut, so the family receives water from a truck. Where I am is so close, that I see in the near distance the Israeli villages, surrounded with green land, which is being irrigated.
