It just never seems to end. Explosions, air raid sirens blaring and people diving for cover, houses reduced to rubble – all of this happens so often in the endless cycle of conflict between Israelis and Palestinians that the world has come to accept it as “normal”.
But a 10-year-old girl shook people around the world out of their apathy with a video that has gone viral. Standing in front of the ruins of her neighbour’s home in Gaza with tears streaming down her face, Nadine Abdel-Taif shows there’s nothing normal about living in a war zone.
Many have tried to explain the Palestinian-Israeli conflict in a way that outsiders can understand but in the video the girl takes just one minute to capture the horror of the situation and show why a solution needs to be found.
