The war has begun again. A woman from Gaza Strip in Palestine said.
She came to Japan in 2019 to start a new life. In November 2019, 34 people have died by Israeli airstrikes in Gaza Strip. She first heard the news of airstrikes. She doesn't usually watch Palestinian news. But she watched the news that day because her brother sent her a message.
She says that she doesn't want to be connected with being a Palestinian and that she misses the smell of jasmine in Palestine.
