Husam Zomlot: 'My biggest fear? A second Nakba' | Real Talk

"I fear a second Nakba," says Palestinian ambassador to the UK Husam Zomlot.

In this episode of Real Talk, we sit down with Zomlot for a frank conversation on the situation in Gaza as it endures Israeli bombardment. Zomlot, who lost six family members of his own in recent days, shares his thoughts on an 'asymmetric' media narrative on Palestinians.

This episode was filmed on 17 October, hours before a reported Israeli air strike on al-Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza killed hundreds of Palestinians. Israel denied responsibility for the attack and attempted to pin the blame on a misfired rocket launched by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) group. PIJ has denied the allegation.
