Israel allows limited Gaza exports [now they allow some, now they don't]

Israel plays a cat and mouse game with peoples lives in Gaza. It has prohibited and allowed some of these exports [as mentioned in the video] twice in the last 24 hours, costing Palestinian farmers further losses.

Israel allows limited Gaza exports

The Israeli siege of Gaza in 2007 halted all exports from the territory shattering the livelihoods of farmers there.

However, for the first time in two years Israel has given permission for Gaza's farmers to export a limited amount of strawberries and carnations to Europe.

But will it be enough to have an effect on Gaza's struggling economy?
