Palestinian children in the Gaza Strip are not able to continue their education due to the latest Israeli war on the besieged enclave, with almost 600,000 students having suffered a significant learning loss. The aggression left at least 260 Palestinians dead, among them 66 children. Until today, many of them are still suffering from nightmares.

In conjunction with the announcement of the Palestinian High School, Tawjihi- scores, 18 students from Gaza are not around to receive their scores as they were killed by the Israeli air strikes.

The release of the test scores is usually met with parties, fireworks and gifts. But due to the crisis in Gaza, many Palestinian students are not celebrating their success.

Sobhi Abu Al Ouf who has lost most of his family members in the Israeli airstrikes, is also among the students who were deprived from pursuing high school as he is traumatized by his loss.

Many students in the Gaza Strip, who have lost their homes or family members, are not able to carry on with their tests for the time being due to the state of depression and instability they are in, following the war on Gaza.
