At Al-Nour amusement park in Gaza, the children of Palestinians killed, wounded or arrested by Israel are admitted for free.

The resort was opened by the Hamas-affiliated NGO Al-Nour three years ago. The location was a venue serving children of the Israeli settlement Netzarim before it was evacuated by former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s government in 2005.
