‘I hope my children will come back to me’: Displaced Palestinian mother’s heartache

Palestinians across Gaza have been repeatedly displaced by Israel’s unrelenting attacks.
Deir el-Balah is one of the areas where people are seeking refuge where conditions are desperate.

A Palestinian woman says three of her children were arrested by Israeli forces as they left their home in Gaza’s Zeitoun neighbourhood on a passage deemed safe by Israel.

“My heart is full of sadness. I dream of them between my arms, I miss them, I want to hug them,” she said, listing her children’s names, Abdallah, Hammam and Faraj.

The three, who were arrested three months ago, remain in Israeli jails and Zeinat has not heard from them since. Another son was killed in Israel’s 2009 assault on Gaza, while she lost her husband when her children were still young.

Zeinat, in recent days, has been twice displaced, having had to leave Rafah for Deir el-Balah as fighting intensifies in the southern city.

“To be honest with you there is no safety and security anywhere in [the] Gaza Strip,” she said. “I don’t know what to do. I have lost so many loved ones throughout the years. I hope my children will come back to me.”
