Palestinians have been forced to innovate ways to rebuild houses destroyed during last year’s war on Gaza.

That is because an Israeli blockade is preventing construction materials from getting into the Gaza Strip.

Many therefore are collecting rubble from destroyed homes, smuggling in cement from Egypt, and using the two to make concrete blocks.

The quality of the concrete blocks is not as good as they should be. But desperate to rebuild homes, few are complaining.
