Israel allows limited export of Palestinian farm produce from Gaza
- Goods will be allowed out of the Gaza Strip through the Kerem Shalom crossing
- Gaza, home to around two million Palestinians, has been under an Israeli blockade since 2007
- The fragile ceasefire that ended 11-days of airstrikes by Israel came into place on May 21
Israeli military body overseeing Palestinian civilian affairs announced on Sunday that it will allow the "limited export" of farm produce from Gaza, one month after a ceasefire with the enclave's Hamas rulers to end an 11-day conflict.
"Limited export of agricultural produce from the Gaza Strip" will begin Monday, AFP quoted COGAT as saying in a statement.
"This civilian measure, which was approved by the political echelon, is conditional upon the preservation of security stability," the statement added.
Goods will be allowed out of the Gaza Strip through the Kerem Shalom crossing.
The crowded Mediterranean territory, home to around two million Palestinians, has been under an Israeli blockade since 2007.
Extra restrictions since intense violence last month have meant Gaza's farmers have been unable to export goods as usual, creating a glut of produce such as tomatoes and strawberries, causing prices to tumble.
The fragile ceasefire that ended 11-days of airstrikes by Israel and rockets fired from Gaza came into place on May 21.
The conflict killed 260 Palestinians including some fighters, according to Gaza authorities.
In Israel, 13 people were killed, including a soldier, by rockets fired from Gaza, the police and army said.
In recent days, ceasefire violations have included Palestinian militants setting off incendiary balloons to spark fires in farmland -- and Israel responding with two rounds of airstrikes.
