Some 1.8 million residents have been imprisoned for a decade in the Gaza Strip, one of the most crowded regions in the world. They can’t leave the area where they live and they can’t export their products. The Gaza Strip is under Hamas but in practice Israel, which has imposed a blockade on Gaza. Hamas may continue to dig tunnels whose target is to attack Israeli communities, but this is clear evidence that the blockade in itself cannot prevent the motivation of Palestinians to commit terrorist attacks. The Israel Defense Forces says that a worsening living conditions and an increase in the number of work permits in Israel will lead to an improvement. For example they will build a seaport that increasing the number of work permits and removing the blockade. But this are not an alternative to the diplomatic process, and they must not be seen as a gesture of good will. It is the obligation of the occupier to the occupied.
