Wedding dresses, soap among banned items in Gaza since 2006

The Israeli siege of Gaza has been ongoing since 2006 with continuous bombardment and bans on simple everyday essentials.

Here is a list of some of the items Israel has banned from entering Gaza:

In 2009, Israel banned the entry of books, dairy products, shampoo, conditioner, and men’s shaving cream, deeming these items as “luxuries.”

In 2010, Israel expanded its siege on Gaza and banned the entry of coriander, chocolate, jam, dried fruits, fabrics, notebooks, empty flower pots, and toys.

The siege further increase in 2018 when Israel banned the entry of baby bottles, diapers, soap, and wedding dresses.

The occupation has also banned the entry of music instruments, preventing all aspects of life in the besieged city.

For more than 17 years, Israel has been restricting the entry of more than 1,000 items into Gaza.

Israel has also been imposing a calorie control on the civilians.

According to the senior advisor to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert in 2006, the occupation has a policy of putting “the Palestinians on a diet, but not to make them die of hunger.”
