According to Palestinian authorities, more than 27,000 Palestinians have lost their lives, including more than 10,000 children, in Israeli attacks on Gaza since October 7, 2023.

At present, the Palestine-Israel conflict shows no signs of subsiding, making life increasingly difficult for ordinary people. In this video, two young boys selling goods walk the streets of Rafah, peddling Middle Eastern shortbread biscuits. Their aim is to save money to purchase warm winter clothes amid the ongoing conflict.

"Due to the conflict, we find ourselves stranded in Rafah," one boy explained.
