About 50 tons of fruit, including bananas, apples, pears and avocados, are moved into the Gaza Strip every week
Fruit Growers Association director-general Ilan Eshel said last week the produce import ban to Gaza strip was a net loss to the Israeli growers.
In a statement issued to the press Eshel said that "Returning the fruit to Israeli markets will cause a price crisis and huge losses to Israeli fruit-growers". He added: "The extra fruit will glut the market to the point where no profits can be made."
Israel resealed border crossings with the Gaza Strip last week, blaming continued rocket fire at its towns, despite warnings from world aid groups of looming shortages of food and fuel in the coastal territory.
Israel had allowed 33 truckloads of supplies into Gaza for the first time in two weeks last Monday. On average, approximately 50 tons of fruit, including bananas, apples, pairs and avocados, are moved into the Gaza Strip every week.
