Gaza family wary of Israeli justice

Victims' relatives remain sceptical as Israeli soldier faces manslaughter charges for killing women.

    An Israeli soldier is being charged with manslaughter for the deaths of two Palestinian women during Israel's war on Gaza.

    Majda Abu Hajaj and her 64-year-old mother were shot dead while carrying white flags made out of bed sheets after Israeli soldiers forced the women to leave their house. 

    But the victims' relatives say they have no faith in Israel's justice system.

    Al Jazeera's Nicole Johnston spoke to the relatives and filed this report from Gaza.
