The latest report from the UN's office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs for Gaza includes this little fact:

In August, 12,076 truckloads of authorized goods entered Gaza through the Israeli and Egyptian-controlled crossings. This is 18 per cent more than the volume of goods entering in July, 36 per cent more than the monthly average in 2022, and 8 per cent more than the monthly average just before the blockade in 2007
Yes, Gazans now get more good than they did before the closure.

The UN tries to ensure that this isn't a big deal, by adding, "However, Gaza's population has grown by 60 per cent since 2007, and so have their needs."

However, its chart of imports to Gaza (from both Israel and Egypt) show that the number of truckloads of goods to Gaza in August is more than double the number in 2006, the last full year before the restrictions, and about 30% higher than in 2005. It appears that in the months before the Hamas coup, Gaza was receiving record levels of imports, anomalously so - but those are the numbers the UN always uses to compare with today.

The chart itself shows that in terms of amount of goods imported into Gaza, there has not been a significant decrease from 2006 levels since 2015!

This chart shows that the "closure" is largely a myth spread by NGOs to maintain their funding sources. Israel restricts (some) products that can be turned into weapons, and nothing else. 

Good luck finding this little fact reported in the media.
