Israel to allow entry of construction material into Gaza

Dec. 8, 2013 7:32 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 10, 2013 10:58 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israel will allow the entry of construction materials for projects planned by the United Nations agency for Palestinian refugees into Gaza Strip starting Tuesday, a Palestinian Authority official said.

Nathmi Muhanna, PA director of border crossings told Ma'an that Israel will allow cement, iron, and gravel into Gaza for the continuation of UNRWA projects.

The Gaza Strip has been under a severe economic blockade imposed by Israel since 2006.

The blockade has severely limited the imports and exports of the Gaza Strip and has led to frequent humanitarian crises and hardship for Gazans.
