Today on The Rupa Subramanya Show, Rupa speaks with Manar Al Sharif. From her roots in Syria to her fervent activism in Gaza, Manar’s journey embodies an unyielding commitment to shedding light on the challenges faced by Gazan women and children.
In April 2020, Al-Sharif was arrested for promoting a Zoom event called “Skype with your enemy” that featured Israeli speakers. The event planners were also arrested. As a consequence, Al-Sharif spent three months in a Hamas women’s prison.
Al-Sharif shares her story with Rupa and her thoughts on the current Israel-Hamas war.
