Shortage of Tires in Gaza
By Micah Halpern

Friday November 2, 2018

I've Been Thinking:

Palestinians have been burning tires. One of the tools they use to obscure the field of vision of Israeli soldiers is burning tires.

So Israel initiated a ban on bringing tires in to Gaza. Eventually, Israel figured, they would run out of the tires.

And now, a shortage of tires has emerged in Gaza. There is a shortage of tires for burning and there is also a shortage of tires for cars.

With a short supply and a high demand, the price of tires will skyrocket. The price of tires has hit $350 a pair - that is an increase of 300% since the burning of tires began.

An essential good has now become a luxury good in Gaza.
