Israel may allow Steel, Concrete, school stuffs into Gaza

"Israel, with Egypt's cooperation, has blockaded the Palestinian territory by land and sea ever since Hamas militants, with a violent anti-Israel agenda, seized control of Gaza in 2007.

For the most part, only basic humanitarian goods have been allowed in.

Items such as cement and steel, badly needed to rebuild homes and businesses after Israel's war in the territory last year, have barely been allowed in. Israel says militants can use them to build weapons and military fortifications.

Under the new guidelines, those materials will be allowed in to an undetermined extent in coordination with the United Nations, but won't be freely available to private citizens, Israeli officials said. Restrictions on things like school supplies, books, computers and toys are expected to be lifted."

While Israel is expected to continue a vast array of economic and military sanctions against Hamas (Islamic Resistance Movement) controlled Gaza (The Gaza Strip), it may be forced to let in less sensitive materials including building materials it has been suggested.

As for the Hamas controlled Gaza economy, this is likely to remain under the ground, fed only by secret Hamas controlled tunnels largely it would seem. Let us see what the Associated Press's "Senior Cabinet ministers" decide!
