'We come in sadness, we go in sadness': Gaza family briefly returns home
By Nidal al-Mughrabi GAZA (Reuters) - Glass and debris littered the road to Ahed Marouf's house in a northern Gaza town on Monday as he rode on a donkey cart with his wife and three children to check on their home during a seven-hour truce declared by Israel. What they saw when they reached Beit Lahiya, near the Israeli border, persuaded them to return to their temporary shelter in a U.N.-run school in nearby Jabalya refugee camp. "It did not feel safe," said Marouf, a 30-year-old farmer. There is no electricity and no water." Along with thousands of other residents, Marouf and his family fled Beit Lahiya - at Israel's urging - during fierce battles last week between Israeli forces and Palestinian militants.
