Israel allows construction materials into Gaza to rebuild 10 factories.
Israel allowed the first truckloads of a rare shipment of construction materials into Gaza on Wednesday to allow the reconstruction of 10 privately owned factories, the Israeli military and Palestinian officials said.
Until now only international projects have been allowed to import such materials, which Israel restricts because of concerns they could be used by Gaza militants who regularly launch rockets at Israeli towns.
Hamas-ruled Gaza is subject to an Israeli and Egyptian blockade that includes restrictions on the movement of goods and people.
In Gaza, Palestinian government coordinator Raed Fattouh said the first two trucks with materials entered Wednesday. The military says several dozen trucks will be allowed in.

It is rather bizarre that Israel feeds the Gazan’s with one hand, and accepts limited rocket terror in return, that cuts off the other hand.
But Jesus the Messiah told us to bless our enemies. So what else to do?
Few like Israel do this. And not many more will be found, if you look among them who claim to know the Messiah. Israel do not claim to know Him.
“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
Something to reflect on, both for Jews and Christians.
