Puppet maker turns tins into toys in ruins of war

DEIR AL-BALAH: On a cinder block work table in the war-torn Gaza Strip, puppet maker Mahdi Karira is busy turning old tin cans into figurines.

He hums as he works, knowing his makeshift marionettes will put a smile on the faces of children displaced by the more than six-month war in the coastal Palestinian territory.

“These puppets can make things around us beautiful,” he said, surveying his handiwork.

Before the war, Karira had a large collection of brightly colored puppets, often taking them to perform in theaters.
