Hothayfa: "I am starting to feel the effect now after the war is over. I learned to be patient, to help my family and neighbors. I became aware of so many things. I learned that there were things, which I thought are important but now I know they are secondary.

"Children are affected by the war. Psychologically, they are not stable. They are scared and they cry all the time. They talk about the conflict even when they play. Their dislike for Israel has increased. The problem is that what the children have been through will for sure affect their worldview when they grow up.

"The government should consider the psychological status of the people of Gaza and they must unite and represent all Palestinians."
