Hamas minister calls additional goods for Gaza "a joke"

Hamas economic minister Ziad Zaza ridiculed the newest items that Israel is allowing into Gaza as a "joke."

He said that they need building materials like cement and iron, not mayonnaise and thread. You know, the things that they need for rockets and bunkers.

(By the way, Israel allows wood to enter Gaza, and very sturdy houses can be built out of wood. For some reason, though, this is apparently part of the joke.)

Firas Press' (fuzzy) graphic accompanying  the article shows illustrates the dire situation in Gaza.
