Gaza's Economic Collapse

The Israeli-led illegal blockade of Gaza has decimated the Gazan economy, and Gaza’s once-strong furniture, garment and agricultural sectors have been all but destroyed after more than a decade of restrictions on exports, imports, and movement. Gaza has been declared unlivable by the UN*, with one of the highest unemployment rates in the world and 80 percent of people relying on humanitarian aid to survive.
