Israel forces food to rot in Gaza

Suhaila al-Louh becomes distressed when she sees her nursery farm. “Something inside me dies every time I go there,” she said.

Israel bombed her nursery – located near the city of Beit Lahiya – repeatedly during its May attack on Gaza. The seedlings of tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and potatoes that Suhaila’s team had planted were destroyed; so were greenhouses and the irrigation system.

The bombing also brought back extremely painful memories. Israel killed Suhaila’s husband, Khader, in July 2014, when it subjected Gaza to another major attack.

Suhaila depends on her modest income from farming to support eight members of her family.

After the first time that Israel bombed her nursery in May, Suhaila went to check on it with her sons and their wives.

“We tried to find things that had not been damaged,” she said. “But we could not find anything.”
