The devastating impact of Israel's war on Gaza was exacerbated by the years of blockade which had already weakened its social infrastructure. Israel has blockaded the Gaza Strip from land, air and sea since 2007. The list of what is not allowed into Gaza changes constantly. At times there have been bans on light bulbs, mattresses, sheets, musical instruments, crayons, clothing, candles, matches, books, shoes, blankets, coffee, chocolate, nuts, pasta, tea, shampoo and conditioner, books and paper. There is a permanent ban on concrete for rebuilding the infrastructure destroyed by the Israeli army through bombings and airstrikes and any item that could conceivably be used as a weapon or as material in the building of a weapon.
