NGO: 35,000 Palestinians in Gaza still displaced from 2014 war

The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) released a statement that highlighted the continuous devastation faced by residents of the besieged Gaza Strip three years after Israel’s 2014 offensive, as thousands of Palestinians in Gaza have remained displaced in the coastal enclave.
 
The 51-day offensive in 2014 left more than 2,000 Palestinians dead, including at least 1,462 civilians, a third of whom were children, according to the United Nations. “Of 11,000 homes totally destroyed during the war, a little over one third have been rebuilt,” NRC noted, adding that many of these families have continued to reside in tents since three years ago.
 
NRC said that 8,135 of those homes have not yet been reconstructed, and added that 160,000 additional homes were also damaged during the war. 35,000 individuals — in Gaza have remained displaced from the war.
