The Gaza war destabilizes strip and puts Israel-Egypt peace treaty at risk

When the Israeli military seized control of the border crossing at Rafah, on the southern edge of the Gaza Strip, the Egyptian government seemed to be taken by surprise. Egypt’s government has stopped cooperating with aid shipments going into Rafah. Experts say the 45-year-old Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty is being put at risk. The World’s Matthew Bell reports. And we hear from a US aid worker and a Palestinian in Gaza City what it’s like for them, more than seven months after the Israeli attacks on Gaza began.
