Gaza Stone Age

"As electricity and cooking gas remain scarce in the Gaza Strip due to the Israeli blockade, Gazan families are turning to a technique from another time: cooking on makeshift fires, using any fuel available—even if it means burning 3-year-old Beisan's favorite sweater. For MENASSAT, Eman Mohammed documents Gaza's New Stone Age in this photo essay. Meanwhile, Ola Madhoun, another of our Gaza correspondents, takes a hard look at her profession after spending time at a journalism workshop in Sweden." (Thanks Marcy)
