KHAN YUNIS : Palestinian girls attend a class at the Suhada Khouza school building, which was damaged during the 50-day war between Israel and Hamas militants in the summer of 2014, in Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip, on September 5, 2015. In a report on the impact of conflict on education in six countries and territories across the Middle East and North Africa region, the United Nation’s children fund UNICEF said more than 8,850 schools were no longer usable due to violence, with around 13 million children being denied an education.
