Some are Al-Agha's relatives, others complete strangers, all hope his Irish passport will shield them when Israel's soldiers arrive. Euronews journalist Nebal Hajjo paid a brief visit to the house.
Palestinian engineer Ibrahim Al-Agha, a dual-national who has an Irish passport, was only visiting family in Gaza for a holiday when the fighting started.
But in the 18 days that have elapsed since then he has opened his doors to more than 90 Palestinians, all desperately seeking sanctuary. All hoping that being under the roof of a man with an international passport, will offer them security when Israel’s land forces arrive.
For almost three weeks, Al-Agha together with his wife and three children, have faced the challenge of hosting so many people.
"We have a big problem, maybe you saw our struggle with food, water, electricity, trying to entertain the kids as well. So, it's a daily struggle from the morning until we go to sleep. It's a daily struggle just to source our needs as a group."
Hammam Al-Afrangi fled the Tal Al-Hawa neighbourhood in Gaza and didn’t even know the Al-Agha’s before arriving at the house. He said: “The first two days were very difficult for us, as we did not know each other, and everyone was afraid and nervous, and we did not know in the first place how we would live together. But after that, we began to learn how to live together, and because the owner of the house was helping us, reassuring us inside his house, and feeding us.”
