Focus on Gaza revisited one family in the territory who have had their lives torn apart by Israel’s use of white phosphorous.
March 27, 2009
Three months have passed since the war on Gaza and for many people life is regaining some form of normality.
For others however, the fallout from the conflict continues to affect their daily lives.
Sabah Abu Halima has weekly physiotherapy sessions and regular visits to the Shiba hospital for treatment on her injuries from white phosphorous sustained during the war.
“I was burnt from head to toe, my face, my legs, my back were burnt,” she says.
“I am still in pain, I have not recovered yet, I massage my arm where they operated it on it but it’s still stiff.
“I can’t even pick up a cup of tea now, my life will never be the same.”
