Over six months have passed since Israel waged its deadly summer assault on the people of Gaza. And still, thousands of people in the war-torn territory are homeless.

According to the charity Oxfam, rebuilding the Gaza Strip after the Israeli regime 50-day war will take at least a century at the current rate of progress.

According to a recent UN assessment, over 100,000 homes were damaged or destroyed, affecting more than 600,000 people. Many people still lack access to the municipal water network.

Many are still living in makeshift dwellings, while others are living in UN schools which have been turned into shelters.

People are complaining about the hard living conditions and their inability to provide proper housing for their families.
