Tires barred from entering Gaza for 19 months and counting Tires barred from entering Gaza for 19 months and counting
30 December, 2019. In April 2018, Israel barred entrance of tires to Gaza in a sweeping and punitive response to burning of tires at demonstrations. The acute shortage has a ripple effect with far-reaching impact on Gaza’s economy, as well as putting people in greater risk of injury and death.

Eid al-Fitr under closure Eid al-Fitr under closure
14 June, 2018. The days leading up to Eid al-Fitr, the holiday that marks the end of Ramadan, are usually some of the busiest in Gaza’s markets. This year, given the dire economic situation, further exacerbated over the past year by Israel’s tightening of the closure and the Palestinian Authority delaying salary payments to its employees in Gaza, demand for products that are considered luxuries has dropped dramatically.
