Two lion cubs rescued from Gaza earlier in July have found a new home at a wildlife sanctuary in neighbouring Jordan.

The seven-month-old cubs were removed from the Gaza home of a Palestinian refugee, according to Mahdi Quatrameez, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Amman-based Al Ma'wa for Nature and Wildlife.
