According to experts, all this is happening with the tacit consent of Israel.

“The opening of the Rafah checkpoint was a common interest for all parties to provide Hamas with a would allow him to keep calm in Gaza and prevent an explosion, '' says economist and editor of the magazine Mohammed Abu Jayab.

According to Abu Jayyab's estimates, Hamas makes up to $ 27 million a month, in addition to taxes and customs taxes paid on cement and fuel.

“Hamas remained at its position and the Israeli government made many compromises. Hamas was stubborn,” said Omar Shaban, a political analyst from Gaza.
