A whole life under siege in Gaza: Mahmoud’s story


Mahmoud, 13, from Khan Yunis in the Gaza Strip has lived through three major Israeli military assaults and has only ever known life under siege.

“Being homeless for so long has traumatised me; I’ve had psychological problems and I haven’t been able to go to school. It scares me to even think about what will happen to me and my family if the virus spreads across Gaza.”
