Thousands of Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip remain without shelter as winter approaches.
Nearly seven weeks since Israel ended its deadly war on the Gaza Strip, the residents of the coastal enclave are experiencing serious hardships.
Many Palestinian refugees are still living at UN schools because their homes were destroyed during the war.
Some, however, have chosen to return to their bombarded homes, although they are facing many problems.
Palestinian officials have already raised concern over the shortage of construction materials to rebuild Gaza after Tel Aviv’s 50-day war on the territory, which has been under Israeli siege since 2007.
Over 2,130 Palestinians, including around 570 children, lost their lives and some 11,000 were injured in the raids. More than 15,600 housing units were also damaged in the attacks, while over 2,200 houses were totally destroyed.
