Peace and chips: dreams big and small as 2024 approaches in Gaza | Israel-Palestine conflict

Deir el-Balah, Gaza Strip – It is bitterly cold and people are trying to build adequate shelters to protect themselves in a new refugee camp created in Deir el-Balah to cope with the overwhelming number of people fleeing for safety.

In the camp, which is near the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital, children run from tent to tent borrowing items, carrying messages or looking for someone to play with because that is what children do.

Al Jazeera spoke to five Palestinians in the camp about their hopes and fears for 2024 as the new year approaches amid Israel’s devastating war in Gaza.
