Living near the buffer zone , Beit Hanoun, Gaza, 18.08.2010

The Ahmad family lives in a half-destroyed house located near the buffer zone. The house was struck by a bomb during Operation Cast Lead. Three rooms were destroyed but miraculously nobody got injured. The family was then displaced for 10 months during which they were renting a flat, and partly repairing the house. They are back, but do not feel safe, in a house which is still half destroyed and is marked everywhere by the war. In the evening they are confined to the house for fear of shootings due to the fact that they live close to the buffer zone.
