    Gaza has been under Israeli blockade since Hamas took control of the Strip in 2007.

    The siege has forced Gazans to rely on supplies smuggled through tunnels that go underneath the territory's border with Egypt.

    On Thursday, the Israeli government announced its decision to let in some items, but Hamas dismissed it as "just propaganda".
