PA official: Israel to allow shipment of goods into Gaza

Feb. 11, 2014 3:24 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 12, 2014 10:20 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israel has agreed to allow a shipment of goods to enter the Gaza Strip, a Palestinian official said Tuesday.

Hussein al-Sheikh, the head of the Palestinian Authority's civil affairs department, told Ma'an that Israel agreed to allow 52 trucks carrying food, cargo, gas, and other fuel to enter Gaza.

Additionally, Israel approved a shipment of supplies to develop a new chain of eye clinics in Gaza, which will be associated with Jerusalem's St. John Hospital Group, al-Sheikh said.

The Gaza Strip has been under a severe economic blockade imposed by the State of Israel since 2007.

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