Talal Okal, a writer in the local Al-Ayyam newspaper speaks during an interview with APA agency, in Gaza city on July 13, 2021. Starting Wednesday, Israel will allow raw materials for critical industries into the Gaza Strip through Kerem Shalom. Until now, Israel has significantly limited the entrance of goods into the enclave following last month’s 11-day conflict, saying it would only expand the type of products allowed into Gaza if the Hamas terror group, which rules the Strip, releases two Israeli civilians held in captivity, along with the remains of two soldiers.
