[1/2] Displaced Palestinians participate in activity organized by volunteers to entertain and support mental health of children affected by the conflict, during a temporary truce between Hamas and Israel, in Khan Younis, in the southern Gaza Strip, November 28, 2023.
The war has turned Gaza's schools into overcrowded camps for displaced people, where children have been enduring the fear of bombardment, displacement from their homes and shortages of food, water and electricity.
"We took advantage of this truce to organise these events to entertain the children and ease away their stress," he said.
Vowing to destroy Hamas, Israel launched an assault on Gaza that has killed more than 15,000 people, four in ten of them children, according to health officials there.
"I am so happy with the games, and I am so happy with this truce," said Gilnar Ahmed, another displaced girl at the Abdullah Siam school.
