Israel hampers aid agencies at Gaza crossingsThe Electronic Intifada -Report - "Kerem Shalom is a small crossing -- entering 200 trucks per day pushes its capacity," says Zarro, as he parks in the seemingly endless line of trucks at the crossing. "Karni [crossing] is nearly five times the size of Kerem Shalom and we used to work until midnight to enter 700 trucks daily," he says. The last time Zorro drove to Karni was in 2006. 31/3/2011
The ‘A-Word’ in HebronLetty Cottin Pogrebin - Forward - In 10 breathless minutes, Issa Amro, a Palestinian human rights activist we met, drew a chilling portrait of Israeli occupation of H-2 and its 18 checkpoints. Though born in Hebron, he is not allowed on some of the streets. Though he practices nonviolence, he is subject to military law, while even the most violent and radical settlers live under civil law. He told us of how Palestinians can be detained without trial for days, Israelis for only 24 hours. Palestinians have to fence their windows to ward off settlers’ rocks; the army fails to protect their homes. 31/3/2011
Palestinians urged to "Buy Gaza" Pam Bailey - The Electronic Intifada - The Israeli currency (the shekel) is the only monetary system in use, and Israeli products dominate key markets, particularly household items such as dairy products and detergents. Although Israel is finally allowing import of the supplies needed to produce most items locally, the four-year-long siege has taken its toll and industries must build up their businesses virtually from scratch. 21/3/2011

Palestinian village under siege following settler killings Mel Frykberg - The Electronic Intifada - Entrances to Awarta have been closed off and a heavy military presence has saturated the area as the Israeli military re-mans roadblocks that were evacuated several months ago following increased security coordination between Palestinian and Israeli security forces. Flying checkpoints have also been set up and Palestinian motorists and pedestrians delayed as their IDs are examined by Israeli soldiers. 17/3/2011
`British show demonizes Israel`Aviel Magnezi - Ynet - "The mini-series, which provoked accusations of demonization and hate-mongering, has been hailed by British TV critics as the year`s best drama." 11/3/2011
Gisha: Karni`s closure is politically motivated and violates recent promises to the World"Limiting access to a [single] small crossing near the Egyptian border is consistent with a series of steps aimed at cutting Gaza off from Israel and the West Bank – tearing at the fabric of Palestinian society and undermining the possibility of a two-state solution."5/3/2011

Palestinian Transport Association Threatens to Close Kerem Shalom Crossing in ProtestIsrael unilaterally shut down Karni, the main goods crossing.

Gaza`s Crossings Squeezed Shut : Gisha response to closing of Karni CrossingGisha - News Release - Gisha expresses concern that today`s closing of Karni Crossing will further restrict the ability of Palestinian residents of Gaza to engage in dignified, productive work. Rather than considering opening new crossings, as Israel promised as part of its "easing" of the closure, Israel is squeezing shut one of the last gateways into Gaza, pushing all access into the small southern Kerem Shalom Crossing.3/3/2011
Gisha prevails in Freedom of Information petitionGISHA - The Defense Ministry must reveal the "red lines document" in which the state apparently established the minimum caloric intake required for the survival of residents of the Gaza Strip. 31/3/2011
