After 2-year delay, clothing to enter Gaza

March 29, 2010 11:22 A.M. (Updated: March 30, 2010 7:01 P.M.)
Gaza – Ma'an – For the first time in two years, Israel will allow clothes and shoes into the besieged Gaza Strip, an official said Monday.

"Ten truckloads of clothes and shoes will be shipped into the Gaza Strip every day," said Nasser As-Sarraj, assistant undersecretary in the de facto Ministry of National Economy.

As-Sarraj told Ma'an that the Palestinian side had tried for over two weeks to convince the Israelis to allow 30 truckloads into the coastal enclave per day, yet they insisted on 10.

He explained that the Gaza coordination committee would begin receiving applications from suppliers starting Monday. Priority will be given to goods that have been distrained at Israeli ports since 2007, As-Sarraj said.

All of Gaza's crossings were closed on Monday and Tuesday due to the Jewish holiday of Passover.
