Palestinians 'In Mourning' As They Celebrate Eid Amid Ongoing Attacks

Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank are observing a solemn Eid al-Adha amid ongoing Israeli military attacks, now spanning over eight months since the conflict began. In Gaza, devastated neighborhoods serve as prayer sites amidst relentless airstrikes, particularly in Rafah and central Gaza. The assaults have exacerbated internal displacement and humanitarian crises, with reports of dehydration and hunger adding to the plight of displaced families, many of whom are mourning lost loved ones.

Despite the grim circumstances, Palestinians strive to maintain a semblance of normalcy for children on Eid, though the blockade has prevented sacrificial animals from entering Gaza, denying them traditional rituals. Meanwhile, Israel has announced a temporary halt in military operations along certain routes to facilitate aid access, yet combat continues in southern Gaza unabated, underscoring the ongoing volatility despite localized pauses.
