Gaza Strip Block

NPR's Sarah Chayes reports from Jerusalem on Israel's latest crackdown on the Gaza Strip, following the killing of a Jewish settler, whose body was found yesterday. Gaza has been sealed off, preventing Palestinians who work in Israel from reaching their jobs. The supply of materials going from Israel into Gaza also has been stopped, and that means loss of work for other Palestinians.
