May 26, 2021. According to information received by Gisha, Israel partially opened its crossings with Gaza yesterday (May 25) but continues to severely restrict movement of people and goods to and from the Strip.
May 18-24, 2021. Movement of people and goods, including humanitarian aid, has been made virtually impossible since May 11, causing severe harm to civilians. Blocking movement and access to and from Gaza constitutes illegal collective punishment.
May 20, 2021. Israel must immediately repair the damaged grid in its own territory, allow the immediate transit of all necessary supplies for repairs in the Strip, and refrain from causing further harm to Gaza residents.
April 27, 2021. According to COGAT, the "fishing zone" will remain closed “until further notice.” Human rights organizations Gisha, Adalah and Al Mezan demand the ban be reversed.
