Al-Amsi reviewed the conditions of workers in Gaza and what they suffer as a result of the Israeli blockade 14 years ago, noting that the Corona pandemic has compounded the difficult conditions of workers and increased unemployment among them.

And that about 2000 workers in kindergartens were affected by the pandemic, while workers in the sectors of tourism, restaurants and major markets were affected, and the work of the "daily" who were "stranded" and about 15 thousand drivers, bringing the number of workers affected by the pandemic to 140 thousand in Gaza.
