Accessing medicine in Gaza

What happens when you have serious medical needs and live in Gaza?

What happens when you have serious medical needs and live in Gaza? With a financial crisis and deep rift between Hamas and Fatah, many drugs are in short supply. Treatments and travel are also restricted by the blockade imposed by Israel and Egypt. The BBC's Middle East correspondent Yolande Knell reports from a Palestinian hospital in East Jerusalem. Also, Labour MP Dr Rosena Allin Khan and Israel's Deputy Ambassador to the UK Sharon Bar-Li discuss.
