Mourned from Gaza to Glasgow, this is Dima’s story

International Editor

More than 14,000 thousand people have been killed in Gaza, during Israel’s assault – according to officials there – and every single one of them has a story.

Last week 29-year-old Dima AlHaj, her husband Muhammed, her six month old son Abood and more than 40 members of her extended family were killed when their house was hit. Dima worked for the World Health Organisation in Gaza and previously studied in Glasgow.

Our international editor Lindsey Hilsum reports on the story of Dima’s life, and her death.
