Since the Israeli-imposed blockade of Gaza almost three years ago, the economy in the Palestinian territory has all but collapsed.
Supplies are tight and that's meant the cost of buying a car or house is beyond the reach of the ordinary buyer.
But amid the gloom, there are a few short term winners. Used car dealers are doing brisk business since new cars are no more available and residents are buying second-hand cars to use them as taxis. Real estate prices have also escalated after many Palestinians lost their homes during Israel's war on the territory last year.
