Razors and rubble: Palestinian barber works in the ruins of destroyed Gaza shop

Palestinian barber Hashem al-Jarousha is determined to keep practicing his profession amid the ruins of his shop in Gaza City which was destroyed by Israeli strikes. A ceasefire was reached late last week after 11 days of deadly violence between Israel and Hamas, and other Palestinian militant groups. According to the Gaza health ministry, 254 Palestinians, including 66 children, were killed, while Israeli authorities say rockets from Gaza claimed 12 lives in Israel, including one child and an Arab-Israeli teenager.
