GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- The first two truckloads of bell peppers was set to be exported from Gaza to Europe on Wednesday through the Kerem SHalom crossing with Israel, in addition to four truckloads of strawberries.

Israel allowed 210-220 trucks loaded with aid and necessities to reach the Strip. It is bound for the trade, agriculture and transportation sectors, Palestinian officials said.

The trucks included 20 new vehicles, two trucks with solar power systems from the Italian government to generate electricity, one truck filled with energy authority needs, and 11 trucks of cement and metal.

Forty trucks of construction material for UNRWA projects and five for USAID were allowed in too.

Limited amounts of gas were allowed to be pumped into the Strip as well.
