Days of Palestine -

Days of Palestine, Gaza Strip –Fifty Palestinian families made homeless by Israeli bombing during the war on the Gaza Strip were rehoused Saturday in mobile homes in Khan Yunis.

During the 51-day war, 9,800 homes were totally destroyed and another 8,000 left uninhabitable, according to data from the Housing Ministry in Gaza.

Imad Al-Haddad, Gaza head of a UAE charity Human Appeal providing these 50 mobile homes, said that, in the town of Khuzaa alone 500 families lost the roofs over their heads.

Mohamed Al-Najjar, 60, whose three-story house was crushed by an Israeli air strike, is one of those moving into the new accomodations, which he described as an “excellent initiative” for the near term.

“We expect to rebuild our house, we do not just want a temporary solution,” he said.

Al-Haddad said each unit — comprising two bedrooms, a bathroom and kitchen — could accommodate six people and cost an estimated 5,400 euros ($7,000).

He said his charity would donate 50 more before the onset of winter.

According to the UNRWA, 65,000 homeless Gazans are still sheltering in UN schools awaiting accommodation, and thousands more have sought refuge with relatives.
