How do you lower the price of tomatoes in Israel? Market tomatoes from Gaza
Israel has banned sale of goods from Gaza within its borders since 2007 despite the fact that there is a security mechanism for screening products that enter Israel from the Strip. The few goods that do exit the Gaza Strip are shipped through Israeli territory – and are sometimes temporarily stored in the country – following thorough security checks.
Meir Yifrah explains that “marketing tomatoes from Gaza is an example of how Israelis and Gaza residents can profit from economic cooperation and from strengthening relationships in the agricultural sector".
