Palestinian Economy: Gaza

en movement


Since 2007, Israeli authorities have imposed a devastating land, air and sea blockade on the Gaza Strip, amounting to the illegal collective punishment of its 1.8 million Palestinian inhabitants. It leaves them isolated from the outside world, denied access to their own resources and facing a 45% unemployment rate.
