The continued bombardment of Gaza has left entire families homeless.
The Ashour family is one of them. Overnight, Amer Ashour took his pregnant wife to hospital as she prepared to give birth.
Little did he know he would return and find no trace of his home after his apartment building in al-Nasr, a neighbourhood in western Gaza City, was bombed.
“What I feared most when the escalation began was that my wife was about to give birth. I was worried about how we would get to the hospital in light of the continuous bombing,” he told Al Jazeera. “But I did not expect that my house would be bombed.”
The building was inhabited by about 80 families.
“Today, all of us, our children and women, are homeless.”
