Elder Of Ziyon - Israel News: Fruit rotting on Gaza border because of new Hamas restrictions
It would be a different world if NGOs would spend 10% as much effort on reporting on Hamas' role in Gazans' misery as they do falsely blaming Israel.
Today there is another story that NGOs like Gisha will ignore (unless this post embarrasses them intoreluctantly mentioning it.)
Hamas just imposed a new tax on fruit in Gaza, demanding 100 shekels per ton of fruit. As a result, Gaza's fruit dealers are not willing to import produce that they will not be able to sell.
20 trucks of fruit are stuck at the Kerem Shalom crossing since yesterday because of this decision.
Hamas has previously restricted imports of fruit directly.
