For close to 10 years, the people of Gaza have lived under a tight land, air and sea blockade that affects many aspects of their lives. Today, an entire generation of children in Gaza do not know life outside of the Gaza Strip; they have already lived through three armed conflicts, and many of them have suffered the loss of family members, friends and homes.
