Gaza: Disabled Palestinians recount horror of Israel's May offensive

Soon after Israel launched its 11-day war on the Gaza Strip in May, Foad Abu Joba’s family, who live in the al-Shuja'iyya neighbourhood, east of Gaza City, fled to a nearby UN refugee agency school to protect themselves from the falling shells.

The family wanted to avoid living through the same suffering they had endured during Israel's 51-day war on the besieged enclave in 2014.

“My family started collecting their things to go to the school at 7pm," Abu Joba, 29, who uses a wheelchair because of nerve damage in his legs, told Middle East Eye.
