Israel lets more goods into Gaza

Israel permitted additional goods and materials to enter the Gaza Strip beginning Thursday after a protest held the day before passed without serious incident. An additional 1,000 workers from the Gaza Strip will also be allowed into Israel, limited to those who have recovered from the coronavirus or been vaccinated.

An additional construction material would be permitted into Gaza through the Kerem Shalom Crossing for international humanitarian projects. Israel also permitted new cars to be imported into the enclave and allowed for a renewed gold trade between Gaza and the West Bank.

Israel has severely limited the transfer of building materials and other goods into Gaza as a means of pressuring Hamas to release two Israeli civilians they are holding captive, along with the remains of two IDF soldiers.
