We went to Erez Crossing (between Gaza and Israel) on the way to Tel Hashomer, and were surprised to find ourselves being called in to meet with the ISA (Israeli Security Agency). I was led into a room where an officer was waiting. He introduced himself as Ibrahim and said: “We know about your son’s condition, and we know you have high blood pressure and diabetes. We’re willing to help your son, but we want information from Gaza and the names of neighbors.”

Israel purports to decide what is best for Gaza’s economy. The decision to allow the sale of goods from Gaza in Israel and the West Bank also dictates what goods can be marketed, positioning Israel as an agency implicit in designing and managing Gaza’s economy.

Cinque anni fa l’attivista e blogger italiano Vittorio Arrigoni veniva sequestrato e assassinato da sedicente una cellula salafita. Gaza non lo dimentica. Oggi iniziative e programmi culturali in suo ricordo

Gaza, 16 aprile 2016, Nena News – È una stupenda giornata di sole e i riflessi argentati del mare illuminano una decina di piccole barche pronte a prendere il largo. Pochi shekel assicurano a famiglie in cerca di svago un breve tour nelle acque intorno al porticciolo di Gaza city. Alle spalle i pescatori sistemano le reti e le casse di legno con il pesce. Poco lontano, sdraiati sulle panchine, alcuni ragazzi approfittano del tepore primaverile per sonnecchiare accanto al mare. È una giornata bella e amara allo stesso tempo. Il mare di Gaza vuol dire Vittorio Arrigoni. Su alcune di queste  barche e pescherecci Vik era salito tante volte con l’intento di proteggere, con la sua presenza, i pescatori costretti a fare ogni giorno i conti con i limiti imposti dalla Marina israeliana davanti alle coste di Gaza.

Yousef, a son of a member of Gaza's ruling Islamic militant group Hamas, falls in love with Suha, the daughter of a fanatical member of the rival Fatah party, rather than Shakespeare's feuding Montagues and Capulets.

Israeli sanctions on Gaza have made freedom of movement and goods almost non-existent, and have contributed to an economy that the World Bank said is on the "verge of collapse."
