On the rubble of houses and in mourning, the Palestinian population of Gaza is celebrating Eid al-Adha until Wednesday, the great festival of Sacrifice, the most important of Muslim holidays. While it is usually the occasion for large family reunions, endless meals, common prayers and joy on faces, this year it is being held in extreme conditions.

There won’t be much sheep sacrifice in Gaza: according to the UN, famine still threatens the territory, where three-quarters of the population has been displaced. It’s a “completely miserable” Eid, testifies a displaced Palestinian in the 12:30 p.m. “We are killed, a lot of people have been killed,” he recalls.

This year, Eid is ultimately no different from any other day. “We were constantly afraid,” says a mother. “But we still dream of the end of this war, especially because there are no more hospitals, no more medicines, no more anything to live normally. All this constantly affects us, our morale… but we must continue just to trying to see smiles from time to time on our children’s faces.”
