Returning to Gaza’s berries under blockade
Gaza’s past and present, through the story of its strawberries.
The people of Gaza experience frequent violence, even war, but in 2020, there was a moment of relief – an understanding between Israel and Hamas, the group that’s run Gaza since 2007. A sign of that temporary peace was strawberries. Today, we’ll tell you why as we revisit a story from Gaza that doesn’t usually make headlines.
