Episode 166 of 1349 episodes

Six months on from the ceasefire in the seven week conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. Just after the conflict began, we spoke to two women on different sides of the Gaza border; Abeer Barakat is a mother-of-four who lived through the war in Gaza and Adele Raemer is a mother and grandmother living in a kibbutz just over the border in Israel. Both said their children are dealing with the trauma of living so close to conflict.
