In this Monday, Feb. 15, 2016, file photo, Palestinian women sift through used clothing at the weekly flea market in Nusseirat refugee camp, central Gaza Strip. Demand for the garments has become a barometer for the economic situation in Gaza, where after nearly a decade of rule by the Hamas militant group, poverty and unemployment levels are higher than ever, and the market for used clothing, including those from Israel is buoyant.

An Iron Dome air defense system fires to intercept a rocket from Gaza Strip in the costal city of Ashkelon, Israel, Saturday, July 5, 2014. The Israeli military said its “Iron Dome” defense system intercepted the rockets that were aimed at Beersheba. The military also said at least 29 other rockets and mortars were fired from the Gaza Strip at Israel over the weekend. It said it had retaliated with airstrikes on militant sites in Gaza.

Smoke rises after an Israeli strike hit the offices of the Hamas movement's Al-Aqsa satellite TV station, in Gaza City, northern Gaza Strip, Thursday, July 31, 2014. Israel said Thursday it has called up another 16,000 reservists, allowing it to potentially widen its Gaza operation against the territory's Hamas rulers in a war that has killed more than 1,300 Palestinians and more than 50 Israelis.

FILE - In this Dec. 20, 2008, file photo, masked Palestinian militants from Islamic Jihad place homemade rockets before later firing them into Israel on the outskirts of Gaza City. In 2009, a prominent human rights group said there was "strong evidence" that Gaza's Hamas rulers committed war crimes by allowing militants to fire rockets from the territory, killing civilians in Israel. The third Gaza war is playing out very much like the first one some five years ago: We are now at the stage where the harrowing civilian toll in Gaza is at the center of the discourse, eclipsing the rocket attacks by Hamas militants which are the reason for the Israeli assault. In 2009, Hamas was firing relatively small projectiles with minimal range, mostly aimed at border communities surrounding the blockaded Gaza Strip. Now Hamas is firing at Tel Aviv, which is 80 kilometers (50 miles) north of the strip, and even at some cities beyond. (AP Photo/Ashraf Amra, File)

FILE - In this file photo taken Saturday, July 19, 2014, an Israeli left-wing activist holds a sign during a demonstration against Israel's operation in the Gaza Strip, in Tel Aviv, Israel. Despite Israeli casualties and world criticism, a near-consensus in Israel supports the government’s conduct of the Gaza war, views Hamas as the aggressor and considers outsiders' moralizing as hypocritical, ignorant or both. A small but vocal opposition exists, but those arguing for peace are vociferously shouted down in a way rarely seen in a country long proud of its spirited, democratic debate.

In this Sunday, Feb. 2, 2014 photo, a Palestinian collects mint at a farm in al-Qarara, Gaza Strip. Israel bars virtually all exports from Gaza, as part of punitive policies against the territory’s ruling Islamic militant group Hamas, but makes an exception for some fresh produce, allowing export abroad, but not to Israel and the West Bank, traditionally Gaza's main market. Israel has cited security reasons for its export restrictions, but critics say that once goods are allowed out of Gaza after having undergone security checks, there's no reason to limit the destinations they can be sent to.

Smoke and fire from the explosion of an Israeli strike rise over Gaza City, Tuesday, July 29, 2014. Israel escalated its military campaign against Hamas on Tuesday, striking symbols of the group's control in Gaza and firing tank shells that shut down the strip's only power plant in the heaviest bombardment in the fighting so far. The plant’s shutdown was bound to lead to further serious disruptions of the flow of electricity and water to Gaza’s 1.7 million people. (AP Photo/Hatem Moussa)
