Israel shipped more than 7,500 tons of apples to Syria from February to April, worth approximately NIS 1.4 million, Agriculture Minister Shalom Simhon said Sunday. This represents double the amount from the previous two years combined, he said. Based on this success Israel is also considering exporting summer fruits to its northern neighbor, Simhon added. Yigal Hen, director of the northern office of the ministry, said the cooperation between various governmental offices, the army, the growers' union and the Red Cross, allowed for this season's record apple export.
