Psychology reports show that 41 percent of Palestinian children suffer from PTSD as a consequence of the brutal Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) also known as 'shell shock' or 'battle fatigue syndrome' is a serious mental condition, which is a lasting consequence of traumatic ordeals that cause intense fear, helplessness, or horror.

Press TV has interviewed Dr. Lina Geha, psychologist at the Palestine Trauma Center about the state of trauma inflicted on the population of Palestine with particularly focus on the children by the Israeli occupiers.
