Ban on palm frond export hits Gaza farmers

Growers of palms say they will lose more than $1m because of the ban imposed by Hamas.

Palm tree farmers in the Gaza Strip say they will lose more than $1m after the Hamas government banned the export of its fronds to Israel.

While Israel blocks almost all exports from besieged Gaza, it had exempted the fronds used in the observation of a Jewish holiday which starts on Wednesday.
