Al Monitor reports that Mellanox employs programmers from Gaza

According to Khaled Abu Amer, Mellanox is one of a number of Israeli high tech companies that employ programmers in Gaza and is the first company to have signed contracts with a Gaza technology company since Hamas took over Gaza in 2007.  

The article named Israeli tech companies start contracting in Gaza goes on to describe the reasons why Hamas generally refuses to conclude contracts with Israeli companies. The article quotes the manager of the programming department at Fusion Co. as saying that “The opening of the Israeli market to Palestinian companies in Gaza is important for the IT and programming sector in the Gaza Strip" and "...such contracts will reduce the unemployment rate and increase the engineering experience in this field regardless of the Israeli political position.”
