The IDF bragged that 48,000 tons of food reached Gaza in the first quarter of 2010. This is almost 200,000 tons a year. However, a population of 1.3 million needs about 1 millon tons a year (US Dept of Agriculture figures) If IDF numbers are right, only about 20% of Gaza's food is imported legally. The rest has to be smuggled in. Indeed, the World Bank claims that 80% of goods in Gaza have to be smuggled through the Hamas-controlled tunnels (with Hamas taking a cut). Gideon Levy is very correct to call attention to the disinformation contained in the 'hundreds of truck' claim. This is a lie, sitting out in the open.
