Hamas is imposing new tariffs on imports of aggregates into Gaza Strip

The Palestinian Minister of Public Works Mofeid Hassaina confirmed on Monday that the imposition of additional levies on construction materials coming from the Israeli side into the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip would ultimate lyob struct reconstruction projects.

In recent days, unconfirmed reports claimed that Hamas’ Economy Ministry in Gaza intends to introduce a new 3-shekel ($0.85) tax on aggregates for each ton imported. This move has been rejected by merchants. Israel responded to the new tax by deciding to halt the supply of aggregates to the Strip.
