Israel relents after international pressure and allows some building materials into Gaza

60,000 tons of aggregates is not a lot but means that at least a start can be made to reconstruction efforts following Israel’s war on the people of Gaza.

Over the past month and a half, at least 60,000 tons of construction aggregates have been imported into Gaza, following a four-year-long wait that dated back to the start of Israel’s siege on the coastal enclave.

Speaking with Ma’an, UNRWA’s spokesman in Gaza Adnan Abu Hasna said the imports had come unexpectedly, but followed years of pressure on Israel from UN and other international bodies.
