  • The Jobless Youth of Gaza Have Lost Faith in Everyone – Cyrille Louis
    Unemployment among the under-25 age group in Gaza is 60%, with 73% for recent graduates. Abdel Rahman in Gaza City looks back on the past as if talking about a golden age. “When they were our age, our fathers and grandfathers would earn 10 times more by working for the Israelis,” he says.
    Shayma al-Naji, 24, obtained her architecture certificate from the Islamic University of Gaza in 2015. She and most of her classmates are unemployed, and many have resorted to work as taxi drivers. She dreams only of leaving Gaza, with two of her older sisters already moved to Britain.
    Jouman Abou Jazar, 28, says, “Everybody would accept to go and work in Israel without hesitation, including some members of Hamas who can’t make ends meet.”  (WorldCrunch-Le Figaro-France)
