Gaza children left orphaned by bloody war

Two Palestinian boys walk amid the rubble of destroyed homes in Shejaiya on August 27, 2014Gaza City (Palestinian Territories) (AFP) – “She will call me Daddy and Mummy,” insisted 11-year-old Amir Hamad, cradling his infant sister in his arms after the Gaza war left him and his four siblings orphans. Fifty days of bloody fighting in and around the wartorn Gaza Strip has cost the lives of nearly 500 children, but it has also turned hundreds more into orphans, who face a future deprived of their parents’ love. “I would rather be dead than without my mother and father,” Amir told AFP, saying he would never forget that fateful moment on the second day of the war when they were killed. “My parents were drinking their coffee in the evening after breaking the (Ramadan) fast, when a bomb fell onto our home,” he said, recalling how an Israeli air strike hit their home in northern Gaza.
