Disaster in Gaza’s darkness | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

Disaster in Gaza’s darkness

Every morning for the past two weeks, Omar Huzeen has sat down outside what remains of his home. He thinks constantly about the fire that killed all three of his children.

The three boys had spent 1 September with their grandfather. When they returned to their parents that evening, the family had dinner, after which 2-year-old Muhammad asked for a drink of milk.

There was no milk at home, so Omar went searching for some.

“I put a candle beside the window to light the room and went to see my mother,” said Omar. “But she didn’t have milk at her home and most of the supermarkets were closed due to the lockdown. I finally managed to buy some milk and came home. By the time I returned, our house was on fire.”

Muhammad and his brothers Yusif and Mahmoud – aged 5 and 4 respectively – were trapped in the blaze.
