Palestinians mark Eid al-Adha amid destruction 

As many Muslims make their annual pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca, families in a small community in the village of Khuuza, in Gaza, are celebrating Eid al-Adha amid rubble.

Families here are living in temporary caravan housing units without electricity or water and are struggling to make ends meet since the recent war with Israel.

The cash-strapped Palestinian Authority has estimated it would cost US $7.8 billion dollars to properly rebuild the coastal territory, with most of the money coming from foreign aid.
