Israel to allow exports of fish, vegetables from Gaza to West Bank

Oct. 1, 2014 9:43 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 2, 2014 2:35 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israel has agreed to allow Palestinians to export vegetables and fresh fish from the Gaza Strip to the West Bank for the first time since 2007, the head of the Palestinian crossings authority said Wednesday.

Nathmi Mhanna told Ma’an that Israel also agreed to let 450 units of heavy equipment including trucks, tractors, forklifts, buses, diggers, cement pumps, and rollers into the Gaza Strip.

Israel had prevented allowing most exports out of the Gaza Strip since deadly violence left a Hamas-run government in charge of Gaza and a Fatah-led authority operating the West Bank.
