According to Shelter Cluster, an international organisation that assesses post-conflict reconstruction, with Israel's bombardment of the Gaza Strip, it is estimated that rebuilding it will take 20 years, due to "the current level of goods permitted to be moved from Israel to Gaza."
Any effort to rebuild Gaza will be hindered by a blockade imposed by Egypt and Israel since the Islamic militant group Hamas seized power in 2007. Israel has severely restricted the import of concrete and other building materials into Gaza, fearing that militants will use them to build rockets and reinforce cross-border attack tunnels.
