"Gaza is a prison" isn't a metaphor

Just one more piece of evidence:
Israel let 199 Palestinians who reside abroad out of the blockaded Gaza Strip on Sunday, and an Israeli official said more would be allowed to leave for their countries of residence later this week.

Israeli security forces prevented two others from leaving Gaza.

Israel has kept Gaza's border crossings closed since June.
To restate: thousands of Palestinians who legally reside in other countries have been held prisoner by Israel in Gaza since June. Now a couple hundred have been generously allowed to resume their lives, with the usual promises that the rest will follow. That is, the rest except for the ones Israel decides aren't worthy.
