The Awaja family is one of thousands whose houses were destroyed during Israel's three-week military offensive against Hamas-ruled Gaza.
Members of the Awaja family, from left: Omsyat, 13, mother Wafa, 34, five month-old Leyali, and Hala, 8, are seen in a makeshift structure that houses them in Beit Lahiya, northern Gaza Strip, June 10, 2010. The Awajas are among thousands of families whose houses were destroyed during Israel's three-week military offensive against Hamas-ruled Gaza, launched in December 2008 with the aim of halting Hamas rocket attacks. An Israeli forces bulldozer flattened the Awajas' house and as the family tried to flee, bullets hit father Kamal, Wafa, and their 8-year-old son Ibrahim, who bled to death in the street.
