TEHRAN (defapress) – The correspondents confirmed that there are no signs of joy across the Gaza Strip, as shops are almost all closed with most of them destroyed. He added that the most important ritual that the people of Gaza perform every year, which is offering sacrifice, is absent as the people are left with nothing to buy it.

The correspondent pointed out that charitable associations and societies are the ones purchasing the sacrifices and distributing them among the families as part of the humanitarian aid programs.

He emphasized that this Eid is tough for the families of the martyrs, the wounded, and the captives, noting that there are more than 10,000 injured people whose limbs were amputated. They are waiting for the reopening of the Rafah crossing to exit Gaza for treatment.

Moreover, there are more than 8,000 captives whose whereabouts are unknown.

Eid has arrived amid looming sadness and agony, especially in light of the closure of the Karem Abu Salem and Rafah crossings and as the specter of famine hits the Strip, especially in the northern regions, hard.

The Imam of the Jabalia Mosque, north of the Gaza Strip, confirmed that Eid has returned to Gaza as its people maintain a strong belief in Allah, exhibit utmost steadfastness, and pay hefty prices for the sake of regaining their land and defending the nation’s sanctities.

He said, in a sermon on Sunday, that the occupation is trying to break the resolve of the people of Gaza to no avail.

The Imam stressed that the Palestinian Resistance will continue to deal heavy blows to the occupation, "which prevents us from performing our religious rituals."
