Drawing a future Gaza

State of Palestine, 2014: Yosef Al Yazir, 6, believes the best thing in Gaza is his family and wishes to see no more death or dead people. He remembers the last conflict, but states that this one is much worse. “There are a lot of children killed,” he said. Fifty days of intense violence that killed more than 500 children and injured 3,300 in Gaza ended with a ceasefire on 26 August, but children’s drawings of a future Gaza illustrate that psychological wounds are only beginning to heal.
