Israel to allow imports of ironware, furniture and textiles from Gaza for first time since 2007

According to the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories, COGAT, Israel will allow Gaza to export ironware, furniture and textiles to Israel starting October 7th, in a bid to improve the Gaza economy and reduce unemployment.

 

Gaza furniture industry has tremendous potential for growth, it is on the verge of collapse because Israel doesn’t allow the sale of wood to Gaza with a thickness of over one centimeter.

 

The latest easing of exports follows a decision in March to allow Gaza growers to sell tomatoes and eggplant in Israel for consumers keeping the shmita, year prohibition on domestically grown produce.

 

In April, Israel allowed 14,000 tons of building material into Gaza, In May, Israeli authorities opened the Kerem Shalom crossing into Gaza and allowed 700 truckloads of goods to enter the region.
