Gaza Strip temporarily stopping tomato exports to Israel

The Palestinian Ministry of Agriculture has decided to temporarily stop the export of tomatoes from the Gaza Strip to Israel due to the high prices they have reached in the local Palestinian market.

The Ministry told the agency Anatolia news that "as soon as market supply increases and prices stabilise, exports will be resumed."

According to official data, the Gaza Strip has shipped some 250 tonnes of tomatoes to Israel since last month. The Ministry of Agriculture reported that the Gaza Strip produces nearly 70 thousand tonnes of tomatoes per year.
