Making sense of the world, one story at a time. Host Malika Bilal and journalists from Al Jazeera's international bureaus share their take on the news every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
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.
