Israel Helps Gazan Farmers Export Strawberries to UK, Gulf States

December 18, 2019 - from United With Israel:

"Israel permitted farmers from Gaza to use Ben-Gurion Airport and Allenby Crossing to ship its produce to countries in Europe and the Middle East.

"The IDF’s Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) has coordinated and facilitated the export of strawberries from the Gaza Strip to England and the Gulf states, which represents the first time such an arrangement has been undertaken."

"About five tons of strawberries were shipped on Tuesday to England via Israel’s Ben-Gurion Airport, and last week a similar amount was sent to the United Arab Emirates and Qatar via the Allenby Crossing into Jordan."

"The IDF noted in its statement that since the beginning of the season, more than 450 tons of strawberries from the Gaza Strip were exported abroad and to Judea and Samaria."
