Siege squeezes Gaza entrepreneurs

Business drops for chocolate factory because of Israeli curbs on import of raw materials.

    Business in the Gaza Strip continues to suffer because Israel is refusing to allow companies to import certain important materials.

    These restrictions have forced thousands of Palestinians to rely on the use of underground tunnels to smuggle the materials into the territory.

    Al Jazeera's Nicole Johnston reports from a chocolate factory in the coastal enclave that has suffered a 70 per cent decrease in business because of the siege.
