FILE - In this Friday, April 4, 2008 file photo, Palestinian athlete Nader Masri, 28, holds the shirt he will be wearing when competing in the 2008 Olympics, at his home in Beit Hanoun, northern Gaza Strip. On Tuesday, April 8, 2014 Israel's high court has upheld a decision by the military to prevent Nader Masri, 34, a Gaza Olympian, from leaving the coastal strip to participate in a marathon in the West Bank. Israel has severely restricted the movement of people and goods in and out of Gaza since the Islamic militant Hamas took control there in 2007. Tuesday's ruling ends hopes of 34-year-old Nader Masri to participate in Friday's marathon in biblical Bethlehem. Israel says only humanitarian hardship cases are allowed to leave Gaza.

In this Sunday, Feb. 2, 2014 photo, a Palestinian collects mint at a farm in al-Qarara, Gaza Strip. Israel bars virtually all exports from Gaza, as part of punitive policies against the territory’s ruling Islamic militant group Hamas, but makes an exception for some fresh produce, allowing export abroad, but not to Israel and the West Bank, traditionally Gaza's main market. Israel has cited security reasons for its export restrictions, but critics say that once goods are allowed out of Gaza after having undergone security checks, there's no reason to limit the destinations they can be sent to.

Once the target of an Israeli assassination attempt, Mr. Mashaal now is confident enough to enter Gaza and walk around in public. (Associated Press)
