Gaza shipbuilders adapt to blockade

With Israeli blockade ending demand for big boats, project aims to teach Gazans to build small vessels from fibre glass.

    Gaza was home to a strong shipbuilding industry before Israel imposed its land and sea blockade on the territory.

    But with fishermen prevented from sailing beyond three nautical miles, there is no longer any demand for large boats.

    In a bid to stay afloat, a donor-funded project is teaching fishermen how to repair and build small boats using fibre glass.
