In 2009, the UNRWA Al Fakhoora school in Gaza was bombed during Operation Cast Lead while civilian IDPs used it as a shelter. The Al Fakhoora programme was created in 2010 as a direct response to honor the victims of this attack on education.
EAA reiterates that collective punishment, reprisals, and attacks on civilians and civilian infrastructure are serious violations of international humanitarian law, and if deliberate they are war crimes.
Al Fakhoora was founded in 2009 after the attacks in Gaza. It takes its name from a school in the Jabaliya refugee camp, where many families took refuge during the war. In the aftermath of the conflict, Al Fakhoora launched its first projects, a diverse set of initiatives ranging from rebuilding educational facilities damaged in the war, providing psycho-social support for children and youth, establishing vocational programmes for students with disabilities, and awarding holistic higher education scholarships to marginalised youth, enabling them to pursue undergraduates studies and complete their higher education.
