Pouring concrete is a rare sight in Gaza as Israel will not let cement into the Hamas-governed besieged Palestinian enclave. But that has not stopped at least one businessman from building a new row of shops in the commercial centre of Gaza city. 

He bought the cement on the black market and paid through the roof, for he thinks that is better than waiting for Israel to lift the siege.

The Israeli siege has created new entrepreneurs in Gaza. Palestinians are not counting on the international community or Israel when it comes to rebuilding their lives.
