Gaza (QNN)- The popular committee for confronting the siege said today that ‘Israel’ banned the entry of $100m worth goods into Gaza.

It added that Palestinians imported the goods legally and that ‘Israel’ approved them. However, ‘Israel’ is banning them.
It also stressed that the Israeli ban constitutes a devastating blow to the economy in Gaza, especially that the siege caused 90% of Gaza’s factories to close.
the committee said that the Israeli restrictions would increase the already high rates of unemployment.
The statement also said that the occupation state is practicing collective punishment against Gazans.
The occupation state has been besieging Gaza for 14 years so far. In 2012, the UN said that Gaza would be unliveable by 2020.
