Gaza school year hit by refugee crisis

Thousands displaced by Israel's offensive have taken refuge in schools, delaying the start of the academic year.

    Hundreds of thousands of Palestinians are still sheltering in UN-run schools in the Gaza strip. 

    Many of those forced to find refuge have nowhere to go, as their homes have been destroyed. 

    The academic year was scheduled to begin in a week, but that has now been delayed.
