The Aqra family, who originated from what is today southern Israel and moved to the Gaza Strip as refugees with the creation of the Jewish state in 1948, are members of the Quraan tribe. They have always been known as horse traders and breeders, renting out their services for the local transportation of goods and occasionally people, charging the equivalent of six or seven US dollars a day.
