Why is a Soumya from Kerala among victims of terrorism in Israel

In this vlog, I tell you about a very specific victim of the latest escalation of tensions between Israel and Palestine and what her story tells us about Kerala. This victim I want to talk about is a young woman named Soumya Santosh. She was working as a nurse in Ashkelon city in Israel and was originally a resident of Idukki district in Kerala. She left behind a 9 year old son. There are two aspects that I will discuss today regarding Soumya’s martyrdom. First is how the society in Kerala reacted to the news of Soumya’s death and second is why I consider her a martyr.
