Israel allows limited Gaza exports

Limited export permits do little to stem farmers' losses from the Israeli blockade.

    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?
