Location(s): At Tiri
Bassima Fawaz speaks about the Irish connections to the occupied villages of At Tiri and Rshaf and recalls walking with Irish doctors to the villages to do medical clinics. She speaks about one occasion where the Lebanese resistance had attacked an Israeli compound. The compound fired back while Bassima and the medical party were out walking to a village. She speaks about running to the United Nations compound with an Irish soldier to take cover. She states that she cannot forget this incident because Lebanon was not the Irish soldier's country and yet she was running, while being shelled, to help others. Bassima also discusses their work with the elderly population in the village of At Tiri.
