“Nearly a year after the end of Protective Edge, little has changed in Shujaiya. A few houses have been patched up, but many more are nothing but rubble. Piles of prescriptions fluttered in front of the destroyed Ministry of Health. Everywhere homes lay collapsed like ruined layer cakes, the fillings composed of the flotsam of daily life: blankets, cooking pots, Qu’rans, cars. In one pile of dust I saw a child’s notebook, abandoned. “My uncle collects honey,” the nameless child had written on the first page.”

“Shujaiya Dust: Gaza Is Still In Ruins a Year After the War” – Molly Crabapple. VICE
