(26 February 2015) – Six months have passed since a ceasefire on 26 August 2014 ended over seven weeks of fighting between Israeli forces and Palestinian armed groups in the Gaza Strip. As UN agencies and international NGOs operating in Gaza, we are alarmed by the limited progress in rebuilding the lives of those affected and tackling the root causes of the conflict.

The Israeli-imposed blockade continues, the political process, along with the economy, are paralyzed, and living conditions have worsened.

Almost two years ago, Kholoud, 32, was shot by a sniper while outside her home in Syria. A single bullet struck her in the neck, leaving her paralyzed from the neck down. Now living in a makeshift shack in Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley, she is cared for by her husband and Handicap International rehabilitation staff.

Kholoud does not know why she was targeted. “There was no reason for it. It seemed like a normal day and it was calm. It was a random shot—there was no fighting at the time. But now we know that there was a sniper in the area.”

The violent conflict that has ripped through South Sudan since 2013, has had profound affects on children. Nine-year-old Monica now lives in a refugee camp at Yusuf Batil, in Maban County.[1] One morning in August 2014, she woke with a high fever, unable to get up out of bed.

"She was too weak,” Monica’s mother recalls. “Three days later, Monica could no longer walk. We tried to heal her with traditional therapeutic herbs, but it had no effect. We didn't know what to do."
