Eid Al-Adha is a few days away and the Palestinians in Gazastill live under siege after surviving a war that has killed thousands and destroyed homes.

Palestinian families are unable to rejoice this Eid or sacrifice animals, as is the tradition at this time, as the blockade isongoing, their homes are still destroyed, and workers have not received their salaries from the national unity government. This has disrupted the local markets as it has stopped citizens from being able to prepare themselves for Eid.
