She said: “I’m always sick. I can’t do anything. I’m only 10,” she said in a video. “What am I supposed to do? Fix it? I’m only 10. I can’t even deal with this anymore.
“I just want to be a doctor or anything to help my people. But I can’t. I’m just a kid.
“I don’t even know what to do. I get scared, but not really that much. I’d do anything for my people. But I don’t know what to do.”

Surrounded by other children, it brings home the reality of the dangerous situation in Gaza where, at any moment, their property could be struck and they could be instantly killed by a missile.

Nadine said: “All of this when I see it, I literally cry every day. I said to myself, ‘why do we deserve this? What did we do for this?’ My family said they just hate us. They just don’t like us because we are Muslims. It’s not fair.”
The video has touched the hearts of millions who have watched it. One person wrote: “My heart has literally broke….what a senseless & selfish world we live in.”
Another said she has had her “childhood stripped away”
