GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israel has agreed to allow a shipment of goods to enter the Gaza Strip, a Palestinian official said Tuesday.

Hussein al-Sheikh, the head of the Palestinian Authority's civil affairs department, told Ma'an that Israel agreed to allow 52 trucks carrying food, cargo, gas, and other fuel to enter Gaza.

Additionally, Israel approved a shipment of supplies to develop a new chain of eye clinics in Gaza, which will be associated with Jerusalem's St. John Hospital Group, al-Sheikh said.

The Gaza Strip has been under a severe economic blockade imposed by the State of Israel since 2007.

The blockade has severely limited the imports and exports of the Gaza Strip and has led to frequent humanitarian crises and hardship for Gazans.

There should be simple rule: one rocket launched from Gaza into Israel - all crossings from Israel to Gaza are closed for one week. If material damage or casualty caused by rocket from Gaza - crossings closed for 2-4 weeks. this way gazans would learn very quick to stop rocket fire.

Maybe with the new eyeglass stores the Gazans will be able to see what a disaster their government is and revolt against them.

Israel should not have the right to admit or deny the entry or the exit of any goods from the Gaza Strip. The 7 year old blockade is a travesty from the point of international and humanitarian law.

@1 ''to gather new intel'': Israel is responsible for designing and building all four generations of the Intel? Core™ processor.

Like it or not, Israel should, does, and will always have rights, and
you should get a grip on the reality, concerning states or individuals:
- Israel is a sovereign state that has a right to choose,
with whom to do business, and whom to allow/deny entry, just like
- You as an individual are free to choose to take part in BDS, and
turn-away unwelcome people at your front door !!
