In Gaza, berries under blockade

This is a story about Gaza that you ordinarily do not see, and it starts with strawberries.

    A set of under-the-radar, indirect talks between the 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.

    Al Jazeera's Stefanie Dekker and Gaza producer Safwat al-Kahlout guide us through Beit Lahia's strawberry harvest.
