Hide Details1hr 7min

Today's episode is hard-hitting and at times emotional, but really, really important. As the world dissects what’s happening in Palestine, we’re putting aside the politics for now, and focussing on the humans of Palestine: the souls behind the statistics, the reality on the ground, what it’s really like to live and grow up in the Gaza Strip, and what life is like under occupation and under siege. 

In this episode we talk to Nisreen Al-Khatib, a married, 27 year old mother to a one year-old baby boy, living in the Gaza Strip since she was 5 years-old. She is the Co-Founder of Quds News Network and tells her story from the heart.

Trigger warning: This episode has themes of war, violence and terror.
