For three days, we’ve not found bread to feed my children. I’m still trying to find flour to make bread for them,” says Fatima Mohammad, a 30-year-old mother of four children, one of whom is diabetic.
“I cannot find food that is suitable for her and she is forced to eat things that she is forbidden from eating. She has lost a lot of weight.”
Originally from a town east of Khan Younis, southern Gaza, Fatima and her family have been displaced multiple times since Israel’s war against Hamas in Gaza started. As Israeli forces approached Khan Younis over the weekend, she was forced to flee again, this time finding refuge in a school near Rafah.
