A Brantford mother is asking the Canadian government to help get her daughter out of Gaza.
Wesam Abuzaiter says her 8 year old daughter Salma went to Gaza with her father in June.
Two weeks later — The Canadian government issued warnings for citizens to leave the war zone.
But Wesam says her husband is a physician and doesn’t want to leave because he’s helping to treat the wounded.
She tells the CBC she deeply understands her husband’s conflict — but worries for her daughter.
She wants Salma’s uncle to take her across the border at Egypt but says the Canadian government has advised her to send her daughter on a UN bus without a relative.
Wesman says she’s afraid to send her daughter without a family escort.
