‘My family is traumatized,’ says business owner and father of 9. Abdul Raheem Abdul Malek and his sons are digging up the road just in front of the family business on Al-Wehda Street in Gaza City, trying to get down deep enough to get a look at the six-storey building’s foundation. They’re worried it’s no longer structurally sound. Last week, in the early hours of May 16, Israeli warplanes destroyed three nearby buildings on the thoroughfare, home to a number of residential blocks with commercial premises at street level. Two of those buildings were just 40 metres away from the store where Abdul Malek sells basic equipment for restaurants, such as cookers and food display cases. He and his extended family live on the floors above the store.
