an excerpt:

Trauma is widespread in Gaza, which has endured three major Israeli assaults since December 2008.

The World Health Organization has estimated that 20 percent of Gaza’s population — or approximately 360,000 people — may be suffering from mental health problems caused by the 2014 assault.

Rajaa and her children had already evacuated their home and were taking shelter in a school run by UNRWA, the UN agency for Palestine refugees, when their house was bombed.
