The recent chilly weather has led to the death of infant Yasser Hamdi from cold in besieged Gaza’s southern Khan Younis, where his family has been living in a shelter made of tin sheets.
Baby Yasser died during the night of December 28th and December 29th. There has been today of claims of another child dying of cold but we have not been able to verify that claim so far.
The penultimate cause of Yasser Hamdi’s death is of course the siege and denial of adequate building materials to complete rebuilding and provide adequate housing both to those who already were living in desperate conditions before the attack in 2014 and those made homeless as a result of it.
