For the first time since Hamas came to power in Gaza, farmers and private businessmen will be allowed to to export goods from the strip, reported Army Radio on Thursday.

As early as Sunday, peppers will be marketed for export from Gaza.

The move comes after the cabinet decided to allow the exports following request by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Salam Fayyad.
