A good place to get reliable information about the daily situation in Gaza is the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, Occupied Palestinian Territories, or UN OCHA OPT. They publish a situation report every day with highlights, quick facts and figures, and brief analysis.

The groups listed under the next section are also excellent sources of information.
There are a LOT of individuals and groups within Israel-Palestine doing peace work, especially non-violent peace work. Here are some, just off the top of my head. If I spent some time looking things up, I could list more.
Please see what they have to say about the current situation, but also about their work and the overall longer-term situation. I can pretty much promise you will learn something you didn't already know.
