The Palestinian family 0f Abu Tair family from Khan Yunis revealed on Wednesday that one of their sons had perished in a shipwreck in the Greek Sea.
In an obituary statement, the family announced the death of Mahmoud Bakr Abu Tair, 27, who perished when the vessel he was on board sank in the Greek Sea.
Recently, the Gazan family of Abu Jazar grieved their daughter Sabreen, who was also trying to immigrate through the Greek sea.
The Israeli siege of Gaza has had a devastating impact on Palestinian youth and their attempts to immigrate. The siege has resulted in an extreme lack of resources, including food, water, and medical care, creating a humanitarian crisis.
This has led to high levels of unemployment and poverty, with many young Palestinians struggling to find jobs, and unable to access basic necessities. This has caused a great deal of desperation and frustration, leading many young Palestinians to attempt to leave Gaza in search of a better life.
However, the siege has made it nearly impossible for Palestinians to leave Gaza, as the Israeli occupation has imposed strict regulations on the movement of people and goods. This has left many Palestinians trapped in Gaza and unable to escape, leading to increased levels of depression and hopelessness among young people.
