Witness: Maisoon Bashir

maisoon bashir: israel withdraws from gaza (presented by mike lanchin) (in the witness series)

“For five years Maisoon Bashir and her family lived on the front-line of the Israeli occupation of the Gaza Strip. Their house was directly opposite one of the Jewish settlements built by Israel after it captured the tiny heavily-populated territory from Egypt in the Six Day war in October 1967.
Israeli troops occupied the top floors of Maisoon’s house, using it as a military look-out post, while Maisoon and her family continued living in the rooms below.
They finally re-gained possession of their home when Israel withdrew from Gaza in September 2005.
Maisoon tells Mike Lanchin about living with soldiers in her own home.”
