The mother of one of the four boys, all from the Bakr family, killed during Israeli shelling, collapses outside the al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City, on July 16, 2014.

An Israeli woman is taking the names of the dead from the unrest on the Gaza Strip, translating them into Hebrew and sharing them online.

Four Palestinian boys were killed by an Israeli rocket on a beach in Gaza yesterday. All the boys were identified as cousins in the Bakr family. But not all the names of the more than 220 dead have been as widely reported.

One Israeli woman has been taking those names, translating them into Hebrew and sharing them online. Michal Rotem joins the show from Israel to talk about her efforts.
