CBC: A journalist who went missing in Gaza for two weeks, was found alive in Khan Younis on Tuesday.

Manshour Shourman’s mother, Mai Hussein, posted a picture of her son, who was thought dead after going missing for two weeks in Gaza.

“Over two weeks ago, on one early morning, I had gone out with a team of volunteers … West to check on the progress of our tent project there,” Shouman said in the video filmed outside Nasser Hospital.

He said that his team left all the electronics behind, so it’s harder to be tracked so their families are protected.

“We had to run for cover, and for the last two weeks, we have been going from house to house,” he said in the video posted to Instagram.
