"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. “Our neighbor’s house was bombed at six o’clock in the morning. I couldn’t sleep because the bombing was so intense. I cannot forget the scenes of the dead and the injured being pulled out from under the rubble”, says this 9-year-old boy (on the picture)."
