Over 450 tons of strawberries have been exported from the Gaza Strip to various locations around the world since the beginning of the season, including the UAE, England and Israel. According to a report published by the Gaza Ministry of Economy, the Gaza Strip imports almost everything it consumes, paying some $3 billion in customs tariffs per year.The Kerem Shalom border crossing is the only place commercial vehicles are allowed access to and from Gaza. More than 1,000 trucks pass through the crossing every day (not counting fuel tankers). Prior to 2010, when Israel eased limitations at the Kerem Shalom crossing, only 150 trucks a day were allowed to enter.Layla Abd Al-Nur and Idan Zonshine contributed to this report.
Right now, a shipment of Krembo, a chocolate-covered marshmallow treat, is being exported from #Gaza for the first time. This is an exciting step in the exportation of processed food from Gaza, which hasn't happened since 2007.
