Palestine Deep Dive and Double Down News host an emergency event, Gaza Frontline, hearing from four Palestinians from Gaza on Nov 8th at the Frontline Club, London.
The discussion is chaired by investigative journalist Matt Kennard, co-founder of Declassified UK.
For a month now, Israel, a nuclear-armed military superpower, has conducted its biggest and harshest bombardments against the captive population of the Gaza Strip, leaving nowhere safe. Now under “complete siege”, Palestinians are not only killed from direct bombardment, crushed under the rubble, but suffer an imposed starvation, dehydration and a collapsed medical system.
A considerable number of respected human rights organisations and experts have expressed concern that Palestinians are at grave risk of genocide by Israel. More than 10,000 Palestinians have been killed in Israel’s bombardments, including over 4,000 children.
Since October 7th, Israel has also reportedly ramped up its oppression of Palestinians under occupation in the West Bank and Jerusalem, killing Palestinians daily and committing other human rights violations such as arresting and detaining Palestinians without trial and committing torture.
Despite Israel continuing to commit atrocities in front of our eyes, Western governments refuse to call for an immediate ceasefire and a lifting of the siege to restore electricity, fuel, water, food and to provide urgent humanitarian relief.
Right now, as their families remain under blockade and bombardment, it has never been more urgent to hear Palestinians in their own words present both the facts on the ground and what must be done to end this ongoing crisis once and for all.

On UN World Mental Health Day, Palestine Deep Dive presents: Palestine’s Mental Health Crisis: Personal and Collective Trauma Under Israeli Occupation
Dr Samah Jabr is the Director of the Mental Health Unit of Palestine’s Ministry of Health in the West Bank and is a trained psychiatrist.
Her practice goes beyond clinical consultation and training, but also addresses the wider Palestinian community's suffering from the ills of Israel's oppressive occupation, apartheid and settler-colonialism.
According to Dr Jabr: “The Israeli occupation is not only a political issue, but indeed a mental health problem. The injustice, daily humiliations, and trauma each and every Palestinian experiences have caused a repetitive injury, both to the individual and collective minds of my people. In Palestine, abuse and trauma are ongoing, enduring, and they affect every aspect of Palestinian life. Individual personalities are impacted, as is the value system of the community as a whole.”
Palestine has an overwhelmingly young population. In previous shows we’ve focused on Gaza’s child mental health crisis; 80% of Gaza’s children now report living with depression, grief and fear according to Save the Children. Join us this time as we Deep Dive into Palestine’s Mental Health Crisis as a whole at this tumultuous moment.

Picking up from where we left off in our June show “Defending the Right to Boycott: Confronting the UK’s Anti-BDS Bill”, (covered here in Al Jazeera) we’ll be learning whether the UK government has indeed been paying attention to British-Palestinians who have been voicing their deep concerns about the moral and legal legitimacy of this Bill, or whether they have attempted to erase them from the discussion altogether, as some reporters have recently claimed.
We’ll also be taking a closer look at the trade union conferences just kicking off in the UK, as well as the upcoming party conferences to assess what the trajectory for advocacy around Palestinian rights in the UK at a time when it has never been more urgent to make space for Palestinians to be heard and lead from the front in discussions which affect them most.
