    After holding Gaza under siege for more than three years, Israel has said it will finally allow new cars and spare parts into the strip.

    Residents were relieved, because they have had to buy damaged cars and parts from tunnel smugglers.

    But a month after the announcement, nothing has arrived because of a dispute between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority.

    Some car dealers are also angry because they could be stuck with over-priced inventory brought to Gaza through smuggling which they will not be able to sell.
