The truce between Israel and Hamas brings little respite to the residents of the Gaza Strip. They have to fight to find water, food or gas.

In Khan Younes (Gaza), residents cook in the ruins of their houses. They are taking advantage of the truce to return home to this bombed neighborhood in the south of the Palestinian enclave. According to the UN, more than half of the homes in the Gaza Strip have been damaged or razed. Meanwhile, on the southern outskirts of Gaza City, other residents continue to flee the north of the enclave. The Israeli soldiers are keeping watch, they are asking residents to go down to the south, but it is forbidden to go up to the north.

Parents worried about their children

Further away, refugees wait to fill their jerrycans with drinking water. Parents worry about feeding their children. In a queue, you have to sleep there at night to hope to exchange an empty gas bottle for a full one. Gazans burn wood, doors and windows for cooking. The truce is a respite, but survival remains a struggle.
