Palestinian Music School for youth destroyed
6 months ago, children in Gaza celebrated the opening of a school to teach them music. Today it lies in a pile of rubble.
31 children had the opportunity to learn guitar, lute or piano. A bombing raid by Israeli forces destroyed the school earlier this week.
Incredibly, none of the children had arrived for their lessons and so they all survived.
The music project for children was the only one of its kind in Gaza. It also housed the largest children's library in the Arab world, with 103,000 books.
There is a determination to rebuild the school and restock the library as soon as possible when the war is finished.
