"The latest escalation which broke out in May 2021 in Gaza and Israel is one of the most intense hostilities that we, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), have witnessed in the region in years. A significant and mostly invisible consequence of the escalation is the impact it has on the mental and psychosocial well-being of the people who live under recurrent cycles of violence. This is especially true for children. Drones and bombs still echo in the head of this 10-year-old girl (on the picture) whenever someone in the house shuts the door. “When I hear the door, I immediately whisper to myself, ‘is the war back? Will we lose our home? Are we going to die?’”."
