My Dear Olive Tree Dir: Osama Qashoo
Palestinian farmer Sharif Khalid with Rageh Ommar
The Olive branch is a universal symbol of peace - but that hasn't stopped it becoming a victim of the Israeli - Palestinian conflict. In the West Bank and Gaza, the Israeli Army has uprooted nearly half a million trees - some of them dating back to Roman times.
What's not in doubt is the personal tragedy this leaves in its wake. Palestinian land owner Sharif Khalid travels over three days to get to the Witness studio to explain to Rageh Omaar why he chooses to sleep in his shed.
