Diapers, baby formula hard to find in Gaza, leaving parents desperate

DEIR AL-BALAH: Zainab Al-Zein was forced to make a desperate decision: feed her infant daughter solid foods that her tiny body may not be able to digest or watch her starve because of a lack of baby formula in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Al-Zein chose to give two-and-a-half-month-old Linda solids, knowing the choice could lead to health issues. “I know we are doing something harmful to her, but there is nothing,” said Al-Zein, feeding her wailing daughter crushed biscuits in the cold tent they now call home. “She cries and cries continuously.”
