Manal Timraz is a Palestinian British woman who has 16 of her relatives killed by the Israeli Authorities. She lost four of her cousins and 11 of their young children during the aerial bombardment of the Gaza Strip
'They were my first cousins and were very close family and people that I kept in touch with all the time - I feel totally numb,' she said, fighting back tears. 'I was told that the children were so badly injured that they couldn't be identified.
'It is so hard when I have got my children here with me but I have decided that I want to speak about this to show people what is happening.'
Manal continues to run her restaurant Habibis in Coventry City Centre, but actively speaks about Peace across the country.
