CAMERA Prompts Global Post Correction on Gaza Construction Materials


After communication with CAMERA staff, the Global Post corrected its inaccurate assertion that "everyday items as well as construction materials, crucial now for rebuilding, are not allowed in" to the Gaza Strip.
 
Today's correction states:

Editor's note: This article was amended to clarify that while the delivery of essential construction materials has been severely restricted, some materials have been allowed to enter Gaza.

In fact, thousands of tons per month of construction materials have been allowed into the territory in recent months. Israel's Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) recently noted that, as summarized in the Jerusalem Post, "Since August, more than 62,000 tons of construction supplies have entered Gaza through the Kerem Shalom crossing." In January alone, for example, 15,205 tons of construction material entered the territory. Hundreds of trucks of goods enter per day.
