    *The charts designed based on historical data available.

    Longstanding restrictions on the movement of people and goods to and from Gaza have undermined the living conditions of 1.8 million Palestinians in Gaza. Many of the current restrictions, originally imposed in the early 1990s, were intensied in June 2007, following the Hamas takeover of Gaza and the imposition of a blockade by Israel.These restrictions have reduced access to livelihoods, essential services and housing, disrupted family life, and undermined the peoples hopes for a secure and prosperous future.The situation has been further compounded by the restriction imposed since 2013 by the Egyptian authorities at RafahCrossing, which had become the main crossing point used by Palestinians in the Gaza Strip given the above restrictions.

    *The gures for 2006 and 2007 represent the ABC materials (Cement, Aggregate and steel bars). Since 2008, the data represent mix of construction materials such as tiles, paint.

    Humanitarian Imports are goods imported by international and local aid agencies to support humanitarian action, mainly food, medical suppliesand construction materials.

    Commercial Imports include a variety of goods imported by the private sector.
