WATCH: Amidst destruction, Gaza youths find expression in parkour

With roots in military obstacle course training and martial arts, parkour is a sport and training discipline in which practitioners aim to move from one point to another in the fastest and most efficient way possible, using no equipment while performing acrobatic moves. The destruction resulted from Israeli airstrikes following an attack by Hamas on southern Israel, which killed around 1,200 people and led to the capture of 2,450 hostages. The death toll in Gaza since October 7 has exceeded 38,150, with over 87,400 injured, according to Gaza's health ministry.
