Thousands of runners embarked Thursday on the second-ever Gaza Marathon along the beach road of the coastal strip despite close to zero Celsius temperatures on the coldest day in years in Gaza and gale winds creating a sandstorm. The marathon was organised by UNRWA, the UN agency assisting the Palestine refugees to raise funds for the UNRWA Gaza Summer Games for 250,000 refugee children who live under very difficult circumstances.
