Gaza/Israel: Israel has once again blocked the entry of cement and other construction materials into the Gaza Strip for private sector projects. It accused Hamas, the militant Islamic organisation in control of the territory, of using the materials to build tunnels in violation of an agreement made after the 2014 Gaza war. The ban will not affect supplies to large international construction projects such as those coordinated by the United Nations.
