A year on from the Great March of Return I still mourn my daughter Razan, killed in cold blood

"She was 20-years-old when she was shot. It was June 1 2018, and Razan, the eldest of my six children and a volunteer medic and nurse from Palestine, was helping to treat wounded protestors taking part in the Great March of Return, which had begun on 30 March last year. In spite of her white coat she became a target for the Israeli Defence Force. As she tried to help evacuate the wounded near Israel’s border fence, she was hit."

How can such a situation be reconciled with the notion of democracy?"
