Gaza mother: ‘I can’t hug my children’

Amani Ahmed left her husband and children, aged eight, 13 and 15, in Gaza last month, unaware that war would break out just days later.

She traveled to the UK to do her Ph.D.

Soon after, airstrikes destroyed her family’s home in central Gaza, and a video of her terrified son went viral.

As her phone signal in Gaza went down, BBC World Service population reporter Stephanie Hegarty met Amani in Edinburgh where she is studying as she anxiously awaited news of her children.
