Fruit Farmers Taking a Loss Due to Gaza Embargo

According to Ilan Eshel, who represents the nation’s fruit growers, the closure of Gaza crossings is also impacting fruit growers in Israel, who regularly deliver sizable orders to Hamas-controlled Gaza.

Eshel stated he and his colleagues are well aware of the need for the security restrictions, but he is calling to devise a system that would permit transport of fruit into Gaza together with simultaneous aid. He pointed out that earlier in the week, 33 trucks were permitted to bring humanitarian aid to Gaza residents.

Fruity growers reported on Thursday that refrigeration rooms are filled to capacity and if the border crossings remain closed, their losses will be compounded.
