Hold on, does that mean that Egypt was blockading Gaza?

A tricky story for the BBC to tell but they manage to blame Israel.

The article is headlined 'Gaza construction convoy crosses from Egypt' and begins 'Egypt has allowed a shipment of construction materials to enter the Gaza Strip from its territory for the first time since 2007.

A convoy of trucks carrying thousands of tonnes of supplies donated by the Gulf state of Qatar entered Gaza via the Rafah border crossing on Saturday.'
Hold on, if Egypt has a land border with Gaza then wasn't Egypt blockading Gaza just like Israel is accused of. Fortunately the BBC set the record straight in the next line:
'Egypt had previously followed import restrictions imposed by Israel.'
It's incredible how powerful Israel is/was, they managed to force Egypt to blockade Gaza.

Readers of this blog will recall how the BBC have tried to hide the fact that Gaza and Egypt even share a border by manipulating maps. Something that I have picked them up on and successfully made them change.
