Gaza: half a year on, and the suffering continues

Israel launched a three-week military operation in Gaza in December 2008. Half a year on and the people of Gaza are still reeling from the effects of that attack. Homes remain destroyed, and access to public services, such as hospitals and water supply, limited. Most people in Gaza are feeling the impact of the strict Israeli closure which they have now endured for over two years. As the entire society becomes increasingly impoverished, some people are relying more on donkey carts and bicycles.
