Gaza mother: ‘I’m not able to hug my children’

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

She travelled to the UK to do her PhD.

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

As her phone signal to Gaza went down, BBC World Service Population reporter Stephanie Hegarty met Amani in Edinburgh where she studies, while she waited anxiously for news of her children.
