The conflict between Israel and Hamas seems to have calmed in between ceasefires.

While Israeli and Palestinian leaders talk peace in Cairo, NPR’s Alice Fordham joins Here & Now's Robin Young to talk about what life is like in Gaza, both inside people’s homes and on the sea, a major point of contention in peace talks.
