In the period before Operation Cast Lead, Israeli officials said that the aim of Israel's blockade on the Gaza Strip was to keep Gaza's economy on the brink of collapse, a US diplomatic cable obtained by Norwegian paper Aftenposten revealed Wednesday
US efforts to pressure Israel into allowing larger money transfers into Gaza were unsuccessful, according to the cable.
In December 2008, the US offered to transfer NIS 250 million in an attempt to ease the economic situation in Gaza but Maj.-Gen. (res.) Amos Gilad refused to allow the offer saying that the Palestinians should not receive anything, the cable said.
