Strawberries to be exported from Gaza

Nov. 28, 2010 8:57 A.M. (Updated: Nov. 28, 2010 7:34 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) – The Kerem Shalom crossing in the southern Gaza Strip, which is usually partly open every day in one direction, will operate in two directions Sunday after European countries convinced Israeli authorities to allow exports of strawberries from Gaza.

The Dutch government had asked the Israeli government to allow strawberries and flowers from Gaza to Holland.

Israeli authorities will open the Kerem Shalom crossing Sunday to allow entry of 150-160 truckloads of goods and humanitarian aid for the agricultural and the commercial sectors, Palestinian liaison official Raed Fattouh said.

Fattouh said two truckloads of strawberries would be exported for the first time in 2010. Limited quantities of domestic-use gas and industrial diesel will also be delivered to Gaza through the same terminal, Fattouh added. He confirmed that the Karni crossing would remain closed.
