Gaza Portfolio: From the Rubble, Life

by Eman Mohammed

Today, Palestine's status in the UN has been changed from "entity" to "non-member observer state status," giving Palestine official non-voting status in the UN. This gives Palestine the right to participate in UN debates and join UN bodies. Two years ago, WPJ ran a photo essay by Eman Mohammed about the lives of Mohammed Khaderi, his wife Ebtesam, and their 22 family members, who live in the heart of Gaza. We are posting it again, to highlight this historic day.

Between the shattered memories of the past and an unknown future lies a pile of rubble that is called home. Mohammed Khaderi, his wife Ebtesam and the 22 members of their family live here, in the heart of Gaza. Their house was targeted by Israeli field operations and all but leveled during the last incursion into the Gaza Strip—the 2008-2009 war. Ever since, the Khaderi family has lived beneath a makeshift tent attached to what remains.
