In Gaza, berries under blockade
Play • 19 min

This is a story about Gaza that you don't ordinarily see, and it starts with strawberries. A set of under-the-radar, indirect talks between Hamas and Israel has brought some ease to economic restrictions at the border. We hear from a farmer whose livelihood has been soured by the blockade, but whose fruit remains incomparably sweet.

In this episode:

We're in Beit Lahia for the strawberry harvest with Al Jazeera's Stefanie Dekker (@StefanieDekker) and Gaza producer Safwat al Kahlout.
