Palestine’s 2023: A year of sorrow
December 23, 2023
This year, Palestinians faced enduring challenges that have deeply affected their daily lives. As the year draws to a close, it’s crucial to reflect on the hardships this community has endured.
The recent bombardments has left Gaza unrecognisable. More than 20,000 Palestinians have been killed in airstrikes. Hospitals, homes, and places of worships, has been severely damaged, leaving families shattered and with no shelter.
The biting cold and harsh weather have pushed families to rely on candles not just for light but also for warmth. Winter, especially, is an incredibly tough time for those residing in shelters, with the most vulnerable in Gaza bearing the brunt of a 16-year siege, intensifying their struggles.
This blockade has resulted in critical shortages of essential medicines and life-saving treatments in Gaza, leaving hospitals and clinics grappling with the overwhelming task of caring for patients amid frequent attacks on the coastal enclave.
