Gaza officials: Cars will not enter this week

July 18, 2010 8:18 P.M. (Updated: July 19, 2010 2:20 P.M.)
Gaza – Ma’an – Officials at the Ministry of Civil Affairs denied reports that cars and vehicles will enter Gaza this week.

Officials said Israel informed the ministry that the Erez crossing in the north of the Strip was technically and logistically ready to receive cars, but did not set any date for imports to begin.

The officials added that “many complicated procedures” must be arranged before Gaza can receive vehicles, principally coordination between Gaza and the West Bank to agree on mechanisms to import them.

Under Israel’s four-year blockade on Gaza, car imports have been limited to the prohibitively expensive models available from the smuggling trade.
