The suffering of the people of Gaza has worsened as the war on the Gaza Strip continues, which has entered its 118th day. They have been displaced to the south after their homes were destroyed due to Israeli occupation and have taken to tents as their shelter. They have been deprived of the most basic necessities of life like food, water and electricity.
But it is said that from the womb of suffering is born greatness, and from the womb of hope and creativity is born, and that's what happened to Hussam al-Attar, the displaced child from Gaza who was nicknamed “Gaza's Newton.” After that, he is able, through simple devices, to generate energy from an invention with two wings, allowing him to generate electricity for the tent in which he lives. He and his family are currently in Rafah Governorate, south of the Gaza Strip, with the simplest equipment available.
In a report by Al-Quds Press Agency, child Hossam revealed that the reason that inspired him to design this invention was his desire to provide the necessary lighting so that his brother can see clearly at night.

Others said, “The people neither surrender nor die.” Despite all that the people of Gaza have endured since the beginning of the war on October 7, they remain steadfast in the face of the occupation, which has transformed the Gaza Strip into a shock. ,
