Anxiety And Hope: Father Of Two Awaits Reunion As Children Flee War-Torn Gaza

Khalid has lost all phone signal with his children but is hopeful that they will arrive in Dublin in the next few days.

It's an anxious wait for the father of two children waiting to leave Gaza.

Khalid-El-Estal told Kildare Today that he's lost all phone signal but he's hopeful that his children, Ali (4) and Sara (1),  will arrive in Dublin in the next few days.

Khalid had been working in Saudi Arabia to support his family when the region descended into war.

His wife, Ashwak Jendia, was killed following a bomb-blast in Gaza.

She died in pain while in intensive care, suffering burns on around 60 per cent of her body, particularly to her face.
