Gaza: Strawberry exports skyrocketing

There is some good news for residents of the Gaza Strip: Revenues from the coastal enclave’s strawberry exports have risen 290 percent over the previous year.

“Strawberries are an important source of income in Gaza for Palestinian farmers and their families,” said the Israeli Defense Ministry’s Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) unit, which facilitates the exports. “The export and sale of strawberries from the Gaza Strip has yielded revenues of about 13m NIS so far this harvest season, a 290% improvement over last year,” COGAT added.
