Nearly 75 Palestinian students became disabled after being injured during the Israeli fierce offensive on Gaza last summer, an official report revealed.
Dr Ahmad El Hawajri, Director General of Educational Guidance and Counseling at the Ministry of Education, confirmed that 75 Palestinian students became disabled after sustaining different injuries during Israel’s aggression on Gaza, of whom there are 22 suffering from visual impairment, 25 from hearing impairment, and 28 from mobility impairment, PIC reported.
He pointed out that hundreds of students in Gaza still suffer from psychological and emotional traumas caused by the summer aggression. "Nearly 673 students suffer from underachievement due to the war effect on them."
He stressed that his ministry will provide all the necessary and required material and psychological support for those students to enjoy their normal life.
On July 2014, Israel carried out a fierce and bloody aggression on Gaza that lasted for 50 days and led to the martyrdom of more than 2100 civilians mostly children and the injury of more than 11,000 others.
The General Federation for the Disabled in Gaza earlier said that more than 40% of the war-wounded are either visually impaired, or hearing impaired, or mobility impaired.
