According to YNet News, aid agencies struggling to shelter thousands of Gazans made homeless by war have resorted to building makeshift temporary homes out of metal due to Israeli restrictions on imports into the coastal territory.

As of February, around 150,000 families were still homeless after last year’s war between Israel and Hamas.

IDF bombardment destroyed thousands of apartment buildings and homes during the conflict.

“During the 50-day conflict, 9,800 homes were totally destroyed and another 8,000 left uninhabitable, according to data from the Housing Ministry in Gaza,” states arabnews.com.

Israel limits the flow of concrete, cement, iron bars and other materials into Gaza. They are considered “dual use” items that could have a military purpose if they were seized by Hamas to rebuild tunnels used to launch attacks.

A UAE association provided 50 mobile homes last year to residents of the southern town of Khan Younis.
