‘Eid under siege: Gaza’s shadow’


We are not fine: War casts shadow over Eid in Gaza

As the Muslim holy month of Ramadan comes to an end, the people of Gaza are facing a somber Eid al-Fitr celebration this year. The ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas has taken a toll on the residents of Gaza, with many families mourning the loss of loved ones and struggling to rebuild their homes and livelihoods.

The violence has left many feeling hopeless and traumatized, with memories of past conflicts resurfacing and fears of more destruction looming. The sound of explosions and sirens has become all too familiar, and the constant threat of violence has cast a dark shadow over what should be a time of celebration and joy.

But amid the devastation, the people of Gaza continue to persevere, showing resilience in the face of adversity. They come together to support one another, sharing what little they have and offering comfort and solace to those in need.

As the world watches in horror at the unfolding tragedy in Gaza, it is important to remember the human toll of war and conflict. The people of Gaza are not just statistics or casualties – they are mothers, fathers, children, and friends who deserve to live in peace and security.

As we mark this Eid al-Fitr, let us take a moment to reflect on the suffering of those in Gaza and to pray for an end to the violence and a lasting peace for all the people of the region.
