A Palestinian boy sleeps on a mattress inside the remains of his family’s house.
A sand storm approached the Gaza Strip, and the first thing that came to my mind was the people living in the remains of the houses that were destroyed by Israeli shelling during the 50-day war in 2014. The densely-populated Shejaiya neighbourhood was almost empty, like a ghost town. The picture of the boy asleep there shows how difficult life is for these people. No one can imagine a boy could sleep in these conditions. But it’s normal for the children now.’
