In this photo taken in the Gaza Strip, a child plays against a backdrop of devastation, framed by the skeleton of a burnt-out car. A scene that arouses conflicting emotions, the innocence of childhood and the despondency of the destruction caused by bombings. The children of Gaza are among the most vulnerable victims of the permanent state of war. They are forced to live in fear, knowing that any moment could be the last before an air strike. Although the infantile instinct is not to give up normality, that instinct is inevitably influenced by the conflict and violence of the context.
