‘I would return to Gaza in a heartbeat’: Ghassan Abu Sittah (Part 2) | Real Talk

“I don’t think we would’ve had the same reaction had there been 10,000 Ukrainian children killed.”

In part two of our interview, we carry on the conversation with Dr Ghassan Abu Sittah, the esteemed plastic and reconstructive surgeon who spent 41 days tending to the wounded in Gaza under Israeli bombardment.

In this episode of Real Talk, the British-Palestinian surgeon accuses Israel of using white phosphorus in Gaza. He also talks about how he sees Gaza playing out in British politics, as well as his upbringing and early decision to become a surgeon.
