BBC HARDtalk – Dr Yasser Abu Jamei – Director, Gaza Community Mental Health Programme (26/2/20)

Stephen Sackur speaks to Dr Yasser Abu Jamei, director of Gaza’s biggest mental health programme. The past few days have seen rising tension in Gaza. Islamist militants fired rockets into Israel and the Israelis responded with air strikes aimed at the Islamic Jihad group. Hardly unusual and certainly not the stuff of international headlines, but that in itself is telling. In Gaza conflict is the norm, so too an economic blockade that has long choked the economy. What happens to a people living with trauma and collective despair?
