Welcome Home: Residents Return to Nahr al-Bared

This week on Crossing The Line, after three months of fighting, scores injured and killed, and an infrastructure in tatters, residents of the Palestinian camp of Nahr al-Bared are beginning to return home, but what are they returning home to?

We’ll speak to Caoimhe Butterly concerning the return of the displaced home owners.

Also this week, more residents from the Gaza Strip are left stranded at the Egyptian/Rafah crossing trying to get home, while others are refused entry into the West Bank, Israel, Egypt, and Jordan for urgent medical treatment; with the continued siege imposed by the quartet, tensions between supporters of Hamas and Fatah, and the ongoing killings by the Israeli Occupation Forces, how is life for the residents on the ground? We’ll talk with Mohammed Omer a Palestinian journalist and resident of Rafah refugee camp about the situation.

Then later in the podcast, The War’s Toll, compiled and read by Scott Burgwin of The Stand Independent News Service.
