Israel will allow Palestinians to begin exporting furniture from the Gaza Strip next month, as part of new Israeli policies to allow goods out of Gaza.

On Wednesday, Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) held a workshop for Palestinian farmers who will begin exporting their goods from the Gaza Strip next week.

During the workshop, IDF officers explained the export process to the farmers that begins from when the produce is harvested and until it is transferred into Israeli via the Kerem Shalom Crossing. It is then loaded sent to Europe. Israel traditionally allows the export of strawberries and flowers to Europe in conjunction with the Dutch government.
