About

What’s this blog about?
The blog, Gaza Gateway, provides information and analysis about movement restrictions imposed on Palestinians, particularly those on movement between the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. We monitor restrictions imposed on the movement of people and goods into and out of the Gaza Strip and their impact on the lives of its residents. We also occasionally publish posts about human rights organizations, Israel’s policies on movement, and other relevant issues.

Who writes this blog?
The blog belongs to Gisha – Legal Center for Freedom of Movement and is written by its staff members. We sometimes publish guest posts which do not necessarily reflect Gisha’s opinions. In these cases, the author’s name is clearly stated.

I’ve started reading but I still don’t understand the basics
A number of different access restrictions are imposed on the Gaza Strip, whether on movement of people or goods. We think this post provides a pretty exhaustive description of the closure on Gaza and it’s a good place to start. If you’d like to dig deeper, we recommend you also read these posts:
