Gazan's rare family reunion abroad

Gaza woman finally meets her mother after being denied travel permits by Israel for 11 years.

    Around 1.5 million people in Gaza are under heavy restrictions by Israel to move in and out of the Palestinian territory.

    It makes it very difficult for many who have family abroad to get special permits to reunite with their loved ones.

    But Mouazzaz Al Dabbeh is one of the very few in Gaza who has been helped by an international humanitarian organisation to reunite with her mother in Jordan for the first time in 11 years.  

    Nisreen El-Shamayleh reports from in Jordan.
