NITZAN, Israel — More than four years after her family was ejected from their home in the Gaza Strip, Karen Sarfaty lives with her husband and four of their children in a small pre-fab house in this small town located about midway between the southern Israeli cities of Ashkelon and Ashdod.
Neither she nor her husband have found adequate employment.
The compensation she received from the government is running out. Her daughter is only now beginning to overcome the trauma of their forced removal from Gaza.
And while the lots allocated to them to build permanent houses are nearly ready, Sarfati says she lacks the money for construction.
