We focus on the impact of Israel's latest bombardment of Gaza, as well as the 15 years of siege and destruction Israel has imposed on Palestinian children in particular.

At least 49 Palestinians have been killed, including 17 children, in Israel’s latest aggression.

Half of Gaza's two million population are children living under siege in one of the world's most densely populated places.

Hosted by Ahmed Alnaouq, a Palestinian journalist from Gaza whose story was the inspiration behind the formation of We Are Not Numbers, we're live with:

Dr. Yasser Abu Jamei, Director of the Gaza Community Mental Health Program.

Hind Wihaidi, A 17-year-old Palestinian musician and writer with We Are Not Numbers living in Gaza.

Rana Shubair, Palestinian mother of three children and author of two books, "My lover is a Freedom Righter", and "In Gaza, I Dare to Dream".
