Palestinian Kamal Awaja, left, plays with his five month-old daughter Leyali, as his wife, Wafa gestures outside the makeshift structures that house the family, in Beit Lahiya, northern Gaza Strip, Wednesday June 16, 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 Kamal, Wafa, and their 8-year-old son Ibrahim, who bled to death in the street.
