Israel releases Gaza goods blacklist


JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israel released its blacklist of goods that will not be permitted to enter the Gaza Strip.

The list was published Monday on the Foreign Ministry’s website. It includes two categories of items whose entry into Gaza is subject to Israeli control: items subject to specific permission and construction items and materials. Items not on the two lists are allowed into Gaza without specific permission.

Items that require specific permission include arms and munitions and dual-use items, such as certain chemicals used for explosives including fertilizers and metal parts.

Construction materials to facilitate construction projects in Gaza authorized by the Palestinian Authority and implemented and monitored by the international community will be permitted entry, according to the list.
