With the ongoing Israeli blockade depriving them of cement and steel and no aid in sight, beleaguered Gazans are beginning to rebuild their homes with clay. Bricks are left in the sun to dry; wet clay replaces cement.
"I am building a house of two rooms, a kitchen, a salon and a
bathroom," said Nidal Eid of Rafah, who plans to help 10 more families when he's done. "I will also build a fire-place."
